Urologist services

A urologist specialises in examining and treating problems in the male and female urinary tract. Patients of both sexes may suffer from kidney and bladder tumours, urinary stones and organic and functional disorders such as urinary incontinence. The largest patient group is men who suffer from prostate enlargement or cancer. Urologists - often referred to as ‘men’s doctors’ - also treat sex-related problems. Urology is a surgical speciality.

The urologist’s most important diagnostic tools are interviews and examinations. Laboratory tests, ultrasound examinations, bladder endoscopies and prostate biopsies can also be used if necessary. Minor outpatient and day surgery procedures are performed at Diacor’s medical centre in Ruoholahti.

Make an appointment online or by calling 09 7750 800. A regular appointment takes 20 minutes. If you think that you will need more time, please book a longer appointment. 


Please bring any relevant test results and case histories. You should also bring a list of the medications you are currently using.


Our nurses and urologists can give you more information about X-ray examinations, laboratory tests and different kinds of surgical procedures.


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.
A 20-minute appointment with a urologist 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.
