Hand Surgery

Nicosia Polyclinic offers various treatments and procedures on pathologies of the hands. Most of these procedures are carried out by our internationally known hand surgeon Dr Stefano Cataldi who visits Cyprus to see his Greek and Cypriot patients. Hand surgery often involves the repair of damage to the hand or wrist which may have occurred to bone, muscle, tendon, nerve and other soft tissue (such as ligaments).

Recognised by all major medical insurers, Nicosia Polyclinic offers fast, convenient, effective and high quality hand and wrist treatment for all patients in a safe and clean environment, whether medically insured, self-pay, or from the increasing number referred by the Ministry of Health.

Nicosia Polyclinic’s operating theatres utilise ultra clean-air technology, minimizing the risk of hospital infection from bacteria such as MRSA. The management of hand conditions is facilitated by our diagnostic department which includes state-of-the-art imaging departments with CT scanning, ultrasound, fluoroscopy facilities etc.
