Surgery and anaesthetic procedures
Pikkujätti hospital units at Tapiola and Itäkeskus and have operating rooms for performing day surgery operations under general anaesthesia by specialists.
Such procedures include:
– ear tubing
– tonsil operations
– flushing of the sinus maxillaris
– frenulotomy (tongue tie operation)
– hernia operations
– medical circumcisions
– removal of moles, lumps, eruptions of the skin etc.
Anaesthetic procedures are performed by anaesthesiologists who specialise in children’s anaesthesia.
The decision concerning surgery is made jointly by the parents and the surgeon performing the operation. Operations that require an operating room are scheduled in advance, and at the same time, the patient is given instructions on how to prepare for the operation. Print instructions here.
Pikkujätti medical centres have modern, functional facilities and equipment. After waking from general anaesthesia, the child remains with the parents/escort in a comfortable recovery room until he/she can be safely discharged from hospital. Day surgery operations will only be performed on patients who are otherwise healthy and more than six months in age.
