After some major surgical procedures, patients are transferred to intensive care as planned.

The methods of intensive care are sometimes tough. We only initiate intensive care when we estimate that the patient's life-threatening condition is transient and that, after pulling through, they have a possibility to live high quality life. 

Our intensive care is implemented in cooperation with intensive care specialists and nurses who have been specially trained. A number of professionals in various specialties are also involved in the treatment of patients receiving intensive care.
