Day Surgery Unit

We treat ear, nose and throat patients and paediatric day surgical patients. We operate in Tyks U-hospital.

The principle of day surgery is that the patient is admitted to a procedure in the morning and he/she is discharged on the same day. Patients can be transferred to follow-up care on other wards, if necessary.

The most common procedures of ear, nose and throat diseases are

  • ventilation tube insertion in the ear
  • tonsil operations
  • nose operations
  • maxillary sinus operations
  • endoscopy procedures
  • removal of moles and papulas

The most common procedures performed on children and adolescents are

  • hernia operations
  • testicular and foreskin operations
  • surgical gastroscopy

We admit patients by a referral, after which a doctor will assess whether the procedure is done day surgically. A day surgical fee is collected from day surgical patients.

In order to make the treatment effective, it is important that the patient commits to self-care. The presence of parents in paediatric treatment is important.

We have a separate room with toys and videos for children. The patients have lockers for storing their clothes, for example. All rooms are equipped with a TV. Use of your own phone in the ward is permitted. The ward has a common coffee room for the next of kin and patients.

We perform approximately 1500 procedures a year.

People in charge:

Head nurse Hanna-Sisko Kaukkila

Physician in charge Perttu Halme (ear, nose and throat diseases)

Physician in charge Timo Hurme (paediatrics)

We are part of the Tyks operational division of Surgery and Cancer Diseases.
