Bokhua Cardiovascular Center
The greatest contribution to development of vascular and reconstructive surgery in Georgia was brought by professor Nodar Bokhua, under the direct supervision and participation of which over a short period of time the powerful scientific and practical center was founded in our country where today, It would be no exaggeration to say that practically all types of complicated reconstructive operations on the aorta and on its visceral and brachiocephalic branches, on the main arteries of the extremities are carried out.
The named Center was founded on the basis of the Laboratory of Microsurgery of Vessels of the academician K. Eristavi Institute of Experimental and Clinical Surgery (founded in 1976) in May, 1980 and since its establishment up to March, 1995 the Center had been managed by the professor N. Bokhua until his tragic death. Since 1995 professor Kote Kipiani has been the head of the Center. Till 2011 the Clinic had been named N.
