    Special interests

    I developed an interest in joint replacement surgery and honed my skills under the excellent supervision of Docent Veijo Vahvanen and Dr Timo Paavilainen at Orton beginning in 1989. In addition to general orthopaedics and surgery for patients with rheumatoid conditions, I am interested in joint replacement surgery for patients with specific problems such as developmental hip disorders of varying degrees and sequelae of congenital hip dislocation. My special interests also include hip and knee replacement revision surgery. I have been responsible for surgical treatment and follow-up relating to orthopaedic issues in patients with haemophilia after Timo Paavilainen retired. My research work has also addressed problems related to joint replacement surgery, as well as long-term outcomes in patients who have undergone surgery.
