He specialized in the field of medically assisted reproduction technology as a senior registrat in the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia (1987-1989) and he is the Scientific Director at the GENESIS ATHENS Clinic.
In 1994, he established the Center for Human Reproduction, a private infertility unit, which is now one of the Europe’s largest, fully integrated, specialized provider of fertility services performing over 4000 IVF cycles per year, accepting infertile couples from all over the world, including Europe, Australia and USA.
In 2004, he founded GENESIS ATHENS Clinic, a private General Gynecological-Surgical Clinic which has made a difference in the health industry. It is a modern Clinic, equipped with the most state-of-the-art instruments, staffed with Greece’s top medical scientists, with the scope to satisfy the needs for highly specialized services and “one day clinic” surgical techniques. The Clinic has an IVF Unit, a surgical department, a gynaecology department, microbiolody and biochemistry laboratory and a plastic surgery department. The ultramodern operation rooms, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, ensure complete safety in the provision of medical services, with the aim to provide medical assistance not only to women, but also to men as well as to couples with fertility problems. This is why GENESIS ATHENS Clinic attracts international patients and couples from all over the world.
In the previous years, he has served as a founder and consultant to several institutions. He established several modern IVF units in different regions of Greece: Volos (1995-2012), Ioannina (1996- to date), bringing infertility treatment closer to patients all over Greece and abroad,in Buckarest, Roumania (2016-to today). He has established collaborations and currently, he is an infertility consultant at GAIA – Obstetrics and Gynaecology Clinic, Athens.

In 2003, Dr Pantos and his team pioneered blastocyst biopsy and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) for β-thalassaemiaresulting in the first worldwide live birth of the healthy child following the application of blastocyst biopsy and PGD. This novelty has included the Genesis IVF unit in the history of IVF: The milestones. He and his team has been also selected and recruited by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) to participate in Randomised Control Trial with an intention-to-treat analysis, of the use of preimplantation genetic screening for aneuploidy by means of microarray comparative genomic hybridization for the chromosomal analysis of the polar bodies (PB) of oocytes collected for in vitro fertilization.
