Dr. George is married and lives just outside Nicosia, however, being a true lover of the sea he spends most of the summer on the coasts of Larnaca and Protaras. Although he does not have a lot of free time to enjoy them he has many hobbies which include most kinds of sports.
George was born in 1959 and he has spent 15 years abroad studying and training in Plastic, Reconstructive, Hand and Microsurgery.
He received his medical degree from The University of Medicine & Pharmacy, Iasi, Romania. He subsequently worked and trained in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department, the Burns Unit and the Microsurgery Unit of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Hospital in Bucharest. Dr. Geroge then obtained a Ph.D degree in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery on the methods of covering soft tissue defects after multiple traumatisms of the extremities. He is currently one of the very few Cypriot plastic surgeons with a Ph.D.
Before returning to Cyprus he trained and worked in Japan, Switzerland and Israel where he gained invaluable experiences.
In Japan he worked in Showa Universitys Department of Plastic Surgery in Tokyo where he practiced Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, Aesthetic Surgery and Microsurgery.
He then moved to Switzerland, to the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University Hospital of Vaud in Lausanne where he practiced exclusively in Aesthetic Surgery.
The Department of Hand Surgery and Microsurgery, the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Burns Unit of Tel-Hashomer hospital in Tel-Aviv, Israel, was his last stop abroad. There, in addition to the usual incidents, the ongoing trouble in the region offered him the opportunity to work with burns, traumas, microsurgery and reconstructive surgery, a truly invaluable experience in the field of plastic surgery.
In addition to his work as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Pouros has written a number of papers in Plastic Surgery which he has presented at various International Congresses. He is also giving lectures and training doctors, in various countries, on the use of injectable fillers for the treatment of wrinkles.
During the last few years he has carried out research in the field of Photo Dynamic Therapy resulting in the invention of a revolutionary cream based on 5 Aminolevulinic Acid. This cream can be used to treat a variety of conditions including some kinds of tumours and acne as well as for skin rejuvenation.
