Orthopedic Surgeon - Excellence in Joint Replacement Surgery

I have practiced joint correction and replacement surgeries in Finland's most famous orthopedic hsopitals, namely ORTON Orthopaedic Hospital, Invalid Foundation, Helsinki and COXA Oy, Hospital for Joint Replacement, Tampere, for more than 15 years. Now, for more than five years I have acted as a private practitioner, continuing my earlier work focused on individually tailored treatments. I have learned that the patient centered, integrated approach is essential in reaching the very goals the patients themselves seek. The key to this is following treatments tailored and maintained by the same practitioner all along.
