Day Surgery Unit and LEIKO (surgery from home)

Day surgery unit

We take care of surgical, gynecological and ear- nose- throat patients.

The principle of day surgery is that the patient is admitted for a procedure in the morning and he/she is discharged on the same day.

Patients require a doctor’s referral to the day surgery unit; after which a surgeon will assess whether the procedure is done day surgically. A day surgical fee is collected from day surgical patients.

To make the treatment more effective, it is important that the patient commits themselves to self-care. The presence of parents during the treatment of pediatric patients is also very important.

The Day surgical unit is open weekdays 7.00 am- 6.00 pm.


LEIKO – surgery from home

Other surgery patients are admitted according to the LEIKO plan, which means that patients arrive in the morning of the operation and are admitted to an inpatient ward for follow-up treatment after surgery.

The patient will be interviewed by telephone or at a nurse’s clinic approximately two to three weeks before the planned operation. The patient’s primary diseases and other issues affecting the treatment are assessed and the patient is given instructions regarding the operation.
