Paediatric Urology and Digestive Surgery Outpatient Clinic

Doctor is checking a baby at Paediatric urology and digestive surgery outpatient clinic.

We treat under 16-year-old patients with problems and diseases related to genito-urinary organs, gastro-intestinal tract, and also patients with craniosynostoses, thoracic deformities and anomalies, and patients requiring treatment for scars.

Appointments require a referral from primary health care or other doctor. An appointment fee is charged for a clinic visit. Investigations such as uroflowmetry, residual urine measurement, and urodynamic studies are often performed prior to doctor's appointment. Parents are requested to fill in bladder and bowel diaries prior to the appointment if deemed necessary. Guidance on challenges related to bladder and bowel function are provided by urotherapist and families may be trained to perform clean intermittent catheterization. If necessary, other professional members of our multidisciplinary team may also attend the appointment. Also, laboratory and imaging studies might be part of the outpatient visit.

We want to provide uninterrupted appointments for all families. Hence, outside dedicated telephone hours, we ask you kindly to contact our secretary, or in urgent issues, paediatric emergency department.

People in charge:

Specialist physician, paediatric surgery, Niklas Pakkasjärvi
Nurse Heli Ojala, tel. 02 313 2497

We are a part of the Tyks operational division of the Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
