What Our Patients Are Saying


"Dr Merianos performed the Nuss Procedure on our 14 year old, march 2022. From start to finish everything went smoothly & successfully, and this was in the middle of a pandemic. Our son is recuperating beautifully & despite all our worries before the surgery, we are very happy with the results and would do it again."

"My daughter is the second child of twins who had a perforated stomach ulcer on the 7th day after birth and underwent surgery on the same day. Over time, the child grew up, periodic abdominal pain began. Now my daughter is 16. Over the past 2 years, we had to go to doctors about 6 times, 4 of them was in emergency. But no one could understand the cause of such a sharp pain, it all started with a stabbing pain, then constant vomiting, exhaustion. It was scary to see your child suffer, and no one understood the reason. Last year, she had the same symptoms, and the doctors concluded that it was appendicitis, did an appendectomy. A year later, everything happened again for Maria. Finally, we got to Dr. Merianos, at that time she had an obstruction of the small intestine, I was in a panic, we were very afraid to have surgery, because there was no understanding of what was inside under the scar from childhood there were big risks. Because of my fear, we decided to postpone the surgery but two months later the symptoms was repeated. After an in-depth analysis of all the previous medical research of the past years, Dr. Merianos, like a true detective, found the cause of our unhappiness and pain. We are very happy that we decided to have surgery, my daughter was also worried about additional scars on her body, but the doctor is just an incredible master, he did everything almost imperceptibly. We are grateful to him for his professionalism, care and high level of qualification. I want no one to be afraid to entrust their child to such a professional, rest assured that they will do everything possible for your child. Grateful again to Dr. Merianos."
