Hand surgeon services

A hand surgeon is specialized in diseases and injuries of the hand and arm. The most common reasons for seeking help from a hand surgeon are different kinds of sports or accident-related injuries, fractures or dislocations, and repetitive strain injuries such as tendon inflammations or osteoarthritis.

Based on the symptoms and test results, the hand and arm surgeon determines what type of treatment is best suited to restore the functionality of the hand. Hand and arm injuries are often diagnosed using X-rays or MRI scans. Our hand surgeons perform surgical procedures on the hands and arms in our private hospital.

Occupational health customers often visit the hand surgeon for a consultation only, after which the actual treatment is carried out by the occupational physician.


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 surgical procedure, please call 09 7750 800.
2.

Find out whether your insurance covers the treatment, especially if the injury is accident-related (bring information about company name and insurance number).

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 also make appointments for any X-ray examinations, laboratory tests or other examination 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 90 euros, but a Social Insurance Institution reimbursement of 13.50 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 76.50 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 93.50 euros for the visit. Any necessary examinations are billed separately.
