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:
- Department of Urology
- Urology Clinic
- outpatient day care
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.
- Surgical treatment of urogenital cancers
- Removal of kidney stones
- Surgical treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia
- Surgical treatment of urinary incontinence in women and men
- Reconstructive urological surgeries
In co-operation with the University of Tartu, East Tallinn Central Hospital is a training centre for many students and residents of the faculty of medicine.
