In the Surgery and Anesthesia Unit for Orthopedics at Töölö Hospital, we treat musculoskeletal injuries requiring surgical treatment.

We are focused on surgical procedures for patients with multiple injuries or patients with spinal or pelvic fractures or severe limb injuries. 

Our patients mainly require expertise in the specialties of orthopedics and traumatology, back surgery, and hand surgery. During the on-call time, we also operate on plastic surgery and maxillofacial surgery patients.

We treat musculoskeletal injuries that require surgical treatment for patients from the Helsinki area, as well as severely injured patients throughout the HUS area and also from other parts of southern Finland. More than 80% of our surgeries are performed as emergency procedures.

We are on call 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, no visitors are allowed in our unit.
