Orthopaedic disorders and urgent trauma surgery can be treated and performed in the Mehiläinen hospitals. Most orthopaedic surgeries performed in the Mehiläinen hospitals are ambulatory procedures, which means that the patient is discharged on the day of the procedure with a short period of recovery. Conservative treatment, which does not require surgery, is enough to treat most cases.
Extensive back and foot surgeries and joint replacement procedures require follow-up treatment, and the inpatient wards of Mehiläinen provide the required facilities for this.
Mehiläinen’s hospital services and orthopaedic procedures are available and performed in Helsinki, Hämeenlinna, Jyväskylä, Kouvola, Kuopio, Lahti, Porvoo, Tampere, Turku, Vaasa and Oulu.
