ORTHOPAEDIC DEPARTMENT

The new, 20-bed Orthopaedic Department have two-person rooms with modern furnishings and adapted for patients with physical disabilities. In addition, there is a stage II intensive care ward for post-operative care and a physical therapy room for patients in rehabilitative care. The activities of the Orthopaedic Department include scheduled bone and joint surgery and inpatient orthopaedic rehabilitative care.
 

The need for operative care is decided by the orthopaedist at an outpatient appointment based on patient’s complaints and radiological findings. The patient’s first appointment with an orthopaedist is on the basis of a referral from a general practitioner or specialist. To avoid follow-up visits, it is recommended to first conduct laboratory and radiology testing based on a GP’s referral.

In the postoperative period, early active rehabilitative care is necessary so that joint function is restored as quickly and effectively as possible. For this purpose, patients are able to continue the inpatient rehabilitative care that was started after joint implants were installed (physical therapy etc) under supervision of rehabilitative care physician and physical therapist.
