Tunisia has become the first country of plastic surgery tourism by its low prices and the competence of highly renowned surgeons who attract patients from all over the world.
The Myron International Clinic, a newly born institute, occupies an important place among the leaders of surgical hospitalization nationwide and more generally worldwide.
The Myron International clinic offers to the patients several areas of surgical intervention as well as a comprehensive care in the patients’ care paths while guaranteeing excellent services during their stays.
Created in 2015, the Myron International Clinic welcomes patients in the luxurious residential area of Lac II in Tunis. In Fact, the name of MYRON designates one of the most famous Greek sculptors from the mid-5th century BC. He was born in Eleutherae on the borders of Boeotia and Attica.
He is the author of numerous statues of athletes, the best known being the Discobole.
In a refined atmosphere, competent and welcoming staff is ready to answer the patients’ questions during their treatment and hospitalization.
A multidisciplinary medical and surgical centre offering state-of-the-art and functional facilities, the Myron clinic has a medical and surgical consulting tray as well as a radiology department and radiological, endoscopic and cardiac exploratory departments.
The Myron International Clinic has a capacity of 110 beds, 20 resuscitation beds, 10 day hospital beds, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and fully computerized management.
The Private Myron clinic is located 10 minutes from Carthage International Airport, 10 minutes from the northern suburbs of Tunis (Sidi Bou Said, Carthage, Gammarth) and 15 minutes from the city centre of Tunis.
This private institution meets all the standards currently required in the field of health, making it possible for it to become one of the most innovative centres throughout the continent.
Doctor Tahar Djemal, founder of the centre spoke to TV Wallonie about his long career as a plastic surgeon underlining that it is a very long journey. He said he started in Tunisia then he left to France to spend four years in a big centre of plastic surgery in Paris then left to the United States of America for a few months of further training and improvement.
“When I returned home, he said, “I wanted to join public hospital but it was very difficult, so I settled on my own in private physician’s office and join the public hospital on a voluntary basis.” “Initially, he noted, “when I settled in private there is no large patients so it was possible for me to work every day in the hospital which gave me a great and deep experience.” Then with time Doctor Tahar Djemal started to become known until 2004 with the advent of the show “Le droit de savoir” of Charles Villeneuve that changed completely his path. From that moment, he said that he received a lot of patients from abroad.
Doctor Tahar Djemal said that cosmetic surgery is something very serious, and that not anyone can do this surgery. “We must be well trained first, have a good curriculum, and above all, it is necessary to be honest with patient and remain a doctor, which is a very important condition, he underlined. Without remaining a real doctor, there is no need to continue as plastic surgeon but rather do another business, he emphasized. First we need to learn to be generous, and be a friend and a human to patients above all and then we think about surgery. This is how we succeed, he concluded.
