Georgian patriarch goes to Germany for treatment

This decision was made after an examination that showed an aggravation of the patriarch’s illness, Tsisana Shartava, the patriarch’s doctor, said, according to the portal Georgia Online.

The doctor said Ilia II now feels fine and it is currently not known whether surgery will be needed.

According to earlier reports, the flu caused inflammation in the patriarch’s gall bladder in early January and a need for surgery could have arisen. Georgian doctors offered to take Ilia II to Germany for treatment, but he refused.

Ilia II was born in Vladikavkaz on January 4, 1933. He studied in the Moscow Spiritual Seminary and Academy. He was elected head of the Georgian Orthodox Church on December 23, 1977.
