    About

    Dr Christos Tziotzios is a Consultant Dermatologist and Senior Lecturer at St. John's Institute of Dermatology, Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London. Dr Tziotzios specialised in scalp and hair disorders, alongside his general medical dermatology (e.g. acne, rosaea, psoriasis, eczema) and skin cancer.

    Dr Tziotzios obtained his medical qualifications from the University of Cambridge. He undertook Academic Foundation Training and completed his Core Medicine Training at Cambridge University Hospitals before competitively being appointed Academic Clinical Fellow in Dermatology at St. John’s.

    He developed an interest in molecular genetic research and hair disorders and secured substantial research grant funding in order to undertake doctoral research into dissecting the molecular pathogenesis of a highly distressing type of scarring hair loss affecting women known as frontal fibrosing alopecia. His PhD research at St. John’s has culminated in high-impact publications, including an original article in Nature Communications, and several distinctions such as the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) Whimster Prize, the BAD Wycombe Prize, the Royal Society of Medicine Dermatology Research Prize and the NIHR/BAD Award.

    He remains active in basic and clinical research: he has recently been awarded the British Skin Foundation Young Investigator Award and leads a UK-wide research consortium investigating lichenoid, scarring and alopecic disorders. He is also the National (UK) Chief Investigator for the ALLEGRO studies into a novel and promising class of medicines for alopecia areata.

    Dr Tziotzios teaches undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc) students and supervises PhD research at King’s College London, whilst is regularly invited speaker in local, regional, national and international scientific meeting

    Dr Tziotzios was incredibly kind, approachable, knowledgeable and professional. He invited me to ask many questions and answered each, at length, with great clarity. I have been very distressed by my condition over the years, but since referral to see him, I feel more confident and in control for future management with new therapies.

    I am extremely happy and lucky that I found Dr. Tziotzios. Due to COVID-19, I had to schedule for a remote consultation but even under these circumstances he was very thorough and he made sure to take notes in regards to my case and to help me with the problem I had. I would recommend Dr. Tziotzios in a heartbeat!

    I feel fortunate to have Dr Christos as my consultant. From the first meeting he was highly professional, caring and I was reassured by his expertise and calm manner. He has a great depth of experience and I would say a leading light in his field. He is personable and I was impressed by his thoroughness and how proactive he was in instigating and recommending a course of effective treatment for me for a condition that I was deeply concerned about. I would recommend him in an absolute heartbeat.

    Dr Christos is one of the nicest people I have ever had the experience of seeing and receiving care and treatment from. If it had not been for him and the opportunity given to me, to be a part of the Alopecia trials, i do not know where i would have gone moving forward. He is Kind and considerate at every appointment to your feelings and requirements. I could not speak more highly of him, or recommend any one better.

    Dr Tziotzios is an amazing doctor that has shown true care for my health and well being. I was very concerned about some post surgery complications from another doctor and he stepped in and has been available, caring, kind, and very well informed. He has been a real blessing during a difficult and worrying time. Simply put, he is a great doctor that has gone the extra mile to provide the best care. Top notch, A+ doctor.
