Mr Panagiotis Gikas is a highly accomplished consultant orthopaedic surgeon in the London area, paving the way in minimally invasive and muscle sparing direct anterior approach (DAA) hip replacement. As a leading surgeon, he also specialises in bone and soft tissue sarcomas, as well as hip and knee arthroplasty, knee cartilage injuries, surgical management of bone disease, and robotic assisted surgery. He is also a professor at the University of Cyprus.
Receiving his qualifications from St George's Medical School, Mr Gikas later completed his medical training in London where he became passionate about research in his field. Mr Gikas has done extensive research on topics such as hip and knee surgery and reconstruction involving robotic instruments, bone and soft tissue cancer, and the use of stem cells to treat cartilage damage. Currently, he is researching how to bring endoprosthetic joint replacements for tumour and complex revision surgeries to the next level, in addition to innovative applications of photodynamic therapy in infection prevention.
Most prominently in his work, direct anterior approach hip replacement that is both minimally invasive and muscle sparing has been his most recent speciality achievement. Mr Gikas has become a leading expert in this technique, allowing him to change the lives in so many of his patients. The technique does not require any tendons to be detached and uses the natural planes of the muscles for the incision work in the front of the hip. Hip replacement patients of Mr Gikas will experience the most advanced procedure available, performed by one of London's few accredited surgeons.
Professor Gikas continues to research and train junior surgeons as a visiting professor at the University of Cyprus. He has had peer-reviewed published work regarding his specialised focuses and has presented, as well. Professor Gikas currently works at Cleveland Clinic London and at the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust.
