International cooperation to bring best urological care to ITK patients


Renowned professor Peter Rehder from Austria (Medical University Innsbruck), who is very active in the fields of reconstructive urology and paediatric urology, joined our team at East Tallinn Central Hospital’s Centre of Urology. This is the beginning of a new partnership in Estonian urology that will ensure that the ITK Centre of Urology can perform high level reconstructive urinary tract operations in the coming years.

“From now on, it is possible to consult and treat patients with more complex and rare urological diseases in Estonia. We no longer have to send patients abroad for treatment or call outside specialists for help. We are taking the first steps towards being able to treat pathologies that require urinary reconstruction,” says Dr Martin Kivi, Head of the ITK Centre of Urology.

“Cooperation with Professor Rehder will help us share new knowledge with colleagues in the field of reconstructive urology across Estonia and involve urologists in operations that will allow them to apply that knowledge later in their own practice.”  

Professor Peter Rehder is the inventor of the AdVance male sling that has helped thousands of men with stress urinary incontinence.
