Ear, nose and throat surgery

In our private hospital, we perform different kinds of ear, nose and throat surgery on adults and children. The need for surgery is always assessed individually. Apart from the symptoms themselves, the patient’s age and hobbies and relevant test results are also taken into account.

Our ear, nose and throat specialists perform, among other things, the following procedures:

  • Tonsil removal surgery (tonsillectomy)
  • Adenoid removal surgery (adenoidectomy)
  • Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS)
  • Nasal wall repair surgery (septoplasty)

For each procedure, preparations are made not only by the surgeon him- or herself but also by a physician who specialises in anaesthesia and pain relief (i.e. an anaesthesiologist) and a team of nurses. We carefully assess the patient’s physical condition as well as any individual risk factors. Learn more about the preparations for surgical procedures.

The procedures are performed under general anaesthesia and the patient can be discharged from care during the same day. You will be given detailed home care instructions, and if necessary, we will also book in follow-up appointments.

A total cost estimate is made during an appointment with the specialist who performs the procedure. The final price is determined by the materials and implants used, the duration and difficulty of the procedure, the need for additional examinations and the length of the hospital stay.

 

The Social Insurance Institution (Kela) can reimburse part of the surgeon’s and anaesthesiologist's fees. The size of the reimbursement is determined by the standard rate which has been set by the Social Insurance Institution for the relevant procedure code. In practice, the reimbursement does not cover the full cost of the procedure.

 

We have built up long-term partnerships with several insurance companies. Learn more about our insurance agreements.
  

With a Diacor Hoitotili (Diacor Healthcare Account), you get opportunities for flexible payment. If you wish, you can pay your bill in instalments.
