He pioneered the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism in Evangelismos Hospital, Athens, where he distinguished himself in clinical practice, research and teaching, and was a founding member of the Hellenic (Greek) Endocrine Society[2] which honours his contribution with the annual Dionysios Ikkos Memorial Lecture.
