Stylianos Kaitanidis
Pathologist – Homeopath

I was born in Katerini Pieria in 1967 and spent many of my school years in Germany.
I studied medicine at the Democritus University of Thrace, where I graduated in 1991. Wanting to understand in depth the knowledge and experience of conventional medicine, I chose to specialize in internal medicine. For this purpose I worked first in the pathological clinic of the psychiatric clinic of Thessaloniki and then in the hospital of Agios Pavlos.

I have known homeopathy since my college years, and as I have found it easy to cure acute but chronic conditions, some of which are considered incurable in conventional medicine, I have decided that this treatment system will be my main healing tool.

I studied Homeopathy at the Hellenic Society of Homeopathic Medicine and then at the International Academy of Homeopathic Medicine under the tutelage of internationally renowned professor George Vithoulkas.
I practice Homeopathy in my private practice and teach it to doctors as part of EIOI courses at the University of Macedonia.
