Surgeon services

Surgery is a branch of medicine where different kinds of problems are treated with surgical procedures. Not all surgical procedures are performed in a hospital environment. Our general surgeons in particular perform many minor procedures, such as birthmark removals and abscess drainings, at our medical centres.

Many patients make appointments directly with a surgeons specialized in a specific type of surgery. At our private hospital and medical centres, we offer the services of, among others, the following surgical specialists:

  • gastroenterological (stomach and intestines) surgeons
  • gynecological surgeons
  • otorhinolaryngological (ear, nose and throat) surgeons
  • hand and arm surgeons
  • orthopedists
  • pediatric surgeons
  • vascular surgeons

Some general practitioners also perform minor surgical procedures at the medical centres.



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.

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


Please pay after the appointment, and at the same time, make appointments for any X-ray examinations, laboratory tests or other examinations that your doctor has prescribed for you.


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 100 euros, but a Social Insurance Institution (Kela) reimbursement of 13.50 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 86.50 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 103.50 euros for the visit. Any necessary examinations are billed separately.


NB! Any surgical procedures are billed separately. We recommend that you book any surgical procedures via the surgeon him- or herself.
