Welcome to my appointment

Welcome to my appointment. I treat Finnish and foreign adult patients with cancer. I help patients understand what a recent cancer diagnosis means medically and more broadly from a life management perspective as well.

Appointments and care inquiries from Treatments and Operations Coordination Team by phone tel. +358 9 4748 2704.

I have treatment and diagnostic experience discussions with the patient and their relatives. Patients may see me during or under follow-up for heavy cytostatic / radiotherapy, I will support and evaluate your treatment policy and clarify any questions you may have about the policy. I also do cancer checks after treatment. In particular, I design and deliver cytotoxic, cancer or radiotherapy and palliative radiotherapy for breast, head and neck cancer.

My special expertise

My special expertise is in the design and implementation of radiotherapy for cancer, especially radiotherapy for breast cancer patients.
