TYKS’ department of digestive surgery is responsible for arranging the specialised treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract in the Hospital District of Southwest Finland, including both urgent and non-urgent treatment. In addition to the TYKS main hospital, we also perform operations in the Salo hospital. Our outpatient services are also available in the hospitals of Loimaa and Vakka-Suomi. Our department also treats patients with conditions that require special expertise from other areas of Finland.
The treatment of abdominal cancers is planned and performed in close multidisciplinary cooperation between physicians from specialties such as oncology, imaging and interventional radiology as well as specialists from the PET centre. All treatment methods are planned individually for each patient with a minimally invasive approach. In addition to diagnostic evaluations, demanding endoscopy procedures such as ERCP procedures and endoscopic treatment of various tumours of the oesophagus and the gastrointestinal tract are performed in the endoscopy unit.
