Nikolas Charalambous
MD, PhD, EBIR

European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR)  
Fellow of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology  Society of Europe (FCIRSE)
Fellow of the Council of the International College of Angiology (USA)

• Member of the German Society of Radiology (DRG)
• Member of the European Society of Radiology (ESR)


Dr. Nikolas Charalambous specializes in minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance, including vascular interventions (Angioplasty/Stenting/aneurysm coiling, embolization of vascular malformation, embolization of acute haemorrhage etc.) and interventional oncology procedures such as transarterial tumor embolization or percutaneous treatment/Ablation for soft tissue tumors, i.e., bone, liver, kidney, lung or metastases.

Dr. Charalambous is board certified by the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe with Certificate of Added Qualifications in Interventional Radiology.  He earned his medical degree from Christian-Albrechts -University of Kiel/Germany. He completed a diagnostic radiology residency at University- Clinics Schleswig Holstein/Clinic for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology. He has been largely involved in the field of Interventional Radiology/Oncology and Vascular Interventions.

He joined the Clinic as Consultant Radiologist and was trained to lead the vascular division including the program for percutaneous treatment of the abdominal- and thoracic aortic repair at the University Clinics Schleswig Holstein -Campus Kiel. Furthermore he performed various embolization procedures including innovates tumor- Chemoembolization/Chemoperfusion, gastrointerstinal – posttraumatic haemorrhage, the portal vein, uterine fibroids, vascular malformations and others. 


He has a very large clinical expertise and has performed a considerable amount of research. His major contribution has been the initiation of clinical studies following placement of new stents and CTO Devices for Peripheral Artery Disease. He has a remarkable scientific career, with an active participation in international scientific congresses and elaboration of research protocols in a wide spectrum of International Radiology. He has published in many international journals. His scientific work includes more than 20 peer review papers and more than 55 abstracts. He has presented and lectured at national and international conferences. 


Following a 16-year career in Germany he returned to Cyprus in 2010 and is centred in Aretaeio Hospital in Nicosia where he consults and operates.
