The famous Greek Professor of Surgery and Transplant Andreas Tzakis, announced in a press conference, early at noon today, that the Archbishop of Athens and all Greece will be transferred to the US transplant centre of Miami on August 15th, in order to undergo liver transplant. The Deputy Minister of Health Mr. Giannopoulos, the President of the Hospital Mr. Stefanidis and all the doctors responsible for the Archbishop’s treatment were also present at the press conference. Before the transplant, Mr. Christodoulos will be submitted to special medical examinations in order for the doctors to decide the medical treatment the archbishop is going to follow after the transplant. That way the danger of abdominal cancer reappearing again will be minimized. The Archbishop wished to release this press conference.
