About the author :

My name is Ioannis C. Papachristos.

I'm a thoracic surgeon and current Head of the Thoracic Surgery Department at the 424 Military Hospital in Greece. It’s a position I’ve held since 1999.

My early years were spent in my hometown, Kalampaka, which lies under Meteora, a picturesque rocky complex with post–Byzantine monasteries built on top.

I studied Medicine at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece. I’ve been practicing Medicine since 1988.
I began my specialist–training initially in Athens, Greece, then continued in the United Kingdom cities of London, Glasgow and Belfast. I’m a former Regent of the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons for Greece (2005–2010). My areas of interest include lung cancer, bioethics, medical ethics, and medical documentation.

I serve as a Colonel in the Hellenic Army Medical Corps.

My inspiration for writing emerged from career milestones and other events in diverse geographical locations and cities in the UK, Greece, the United States, France and elsewhere. My first three books were written and published in 2016: two in Greek and one in English.
