Orton has long experience in orthopaedic surgery. The first joint replacement operation in Finland was performed in 1967 at the then Invalid Foundation Hospital, which also performed Finland’s first endoscopic operation in 1976. Patients with musculoskeletal problems and pain are treated by physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists. Our skilled physiotherapists have extensive knowledge of the rehabilitation techniques used to increase mobility, improve functional capacity and reduce pain. We also provide appointments with specialists in ophthalmology, rheumatology, internal medicine and geriatrics as well as appointments with a psychologist. If you need therapy services, the following areas are available:
- speech therapy
- sexological counselling and sex therapy
- occupational therapy
If you have back complaints, visit us at Orton for an assessment of their cause. On your first visit, you will be allocated a primary nurse to design an individual treatment plan for you and monitor your treatment progress. The primary nurse will pass you on to an expert skilled in the treatment of your specific problem. If necessary, you may be treated by a team of several experts with experience in treating back conditions.

Physiotherapy improves muscle balance and posture control. Orton’s skilled physiotherapists have extensive knowledge of the rehabilitation techniques used to increase mobility, improve functional capacity and reduce pain.
The knee is highly susceptible to injuries because of its extensive mobility, the high forces to which it is subjected, and the length of the leg bones. Knee ligament and meniscus injuries are common exercise-related problems. Orton is the Finnish expert in musculoskeletal disorders. We are here to help you. The first arthroscopic surgery in Finland was performed at Orton in 1976.
Back pain is a common problem. The term back pain generally refers to lower back pain, which may be localised back pain, pain that radiates to the leg, or pain due to poor back posture. Should you have back pain that is constant, radiates to the limbs or wakes you up at night, visit Orton for an assessment of its cause. We will help you find quick and effective relief for your pain.
