Experience in Orthopedics

A full range of Conservative and Surgery treatment of the patients. Significant experience in local infusions to treat pain disorders of the spine.

Specialty in joint replacements, arthroscopic surgery and sports injuries. In particular, the replacement of hip joints, with the MEDACTA AMIS technique.

Dr. Granitsas deals with elective orthopaedics, mainly with hip and knee and he is approved by MEDACTA, the leading company on joint replacement, using the anterior minimal invasive approach for the hip replacement and the custom made knee, which has robotic accuracy.  Both techniques are considered as state of art and give impressive results, he uses the premises of the Athens Medical Group hospitals and in Cyprus those of the American Medical Center (American Heart Institute) in Nicosia.
