Centre of Urology

The Centre of Urology at East Tallinn Central Hospital is one of the oldest in Estonia. The separate department was established at Tallinn Hospital No.1 on 4 January 1950. In 2017, the structure of the Surgery Clinic changed and a urology centre was formed within the surgery clinic. Our core values commitment to the patient, professionalism and teamwork.

The Centre of Urology includes:

All our centre’s urologists have extensive experience and are regularly improving their knowledge and skills at different professional training courses.

In 2018, >60% of interventions and operations at our centre were performed mini-invasively, either laparoscopically or endoscopically. Mini-invasive methods ensure faster recovery, significantly reduced post-operative pain and fewer complications.

During laparoscopic surgery, we use high-definition (HD) 3D technological solutions which help reduce the operating time and ensure an even higher level of surgical quality.

We provide emergency and non-emergency urological treatment for adults. We treat patients from all over Estonia. Each year, we treat over 1400 patients and perform more than 1000 urological surgeries.
