Gastroenterological surgeon services

Gastroenterological surgery is a specialist field of medicine which focuses on surgical treatment of problems in the digestive and abdominal organs. Diacor’s gastroenterological surgeons treat problems such as hernias, gallstones, reflux disease (heartburn) and anal diseases.

Gastroenterological surgery is usually performed on referral from a gastroenterological specialist. The need for any additional examinations is assessed during an appointment prior to the procedure. If the patient has been examined and diagnosed elsewhere, surgery can also be performed on referral from another physician. In most cases, the surgeon and the patient meet three times: for an initial appointment, for the procedure itself and for a postoperative check-up.

NB! Not all gastroenterological surgeons perform surgery at Diacor’s hospital. You will get more information when making your appointment.


Instructions

1.

Make an appointment online or by calling 09 7750 800. You can also make an appointment at the reception desk at any Diacor medical centre.

  • If you want to make an appointment for a procedure such as gastroscopy, please call 09 7750 800.
2.

If you are referred to surgery, you can make an appointment for the procedure directly with the surgeon or by calling the hospital on 09 7750 8180. Learn more about the preparations for surgical procedures.

3.

If you have received treatment or been for follow-up visits elsewhere, please bring any relevant test results and case histories.

4.

When paying, you can schedule appointments for any X-ray examinations, laboratory tests or other examinations or treatments that your doctor has prescribed for you.

Expenses

A private physician sets his or her own rates, so the prices may vary depending on how long the appointment takes, for instance. You can get information about a particular physician’s rates online or when you make an appointment.

 

An appointment of less than 20 minutes normally costs around 75 euros, but a Social Insurance Institution reimbursement of 13.50 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 61.50 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 78.50 euros for the visit. Any necessary examinations and further treatments are billed separately.
