M.D., Plastic Surgeon, Orthopedic Surgeon
Vesa Juutilainen, an orthopedic and plastic surgeon, is responsible for Helsinki Hospital's ulcer clinic and lower limb plastic surgery, and he also performs general corrective plastic surgery, particularly on the torso.
“In the private sector, plastic surgery has traditionally been esthetic surgery, and there has been a lack of surgical treatment of problem ulcers and other corrective surgery. In the public sector, on the other hand, treatment of problem ulcers has been poorly organized and the quality has been inconsistent. We want to establish a multidisciplinary clinic at Helsinki Hospital that concentrates on ulcer treatment,” says Juutilainen.
His surgical background is highly versatile. He first studied orthopedics and later specialized in plastic surgery. Creativity is essential in plastic surgery, and this appeals to Juutilainen.
“In many fields of surgery, the work is done using the same template, but correction of tissue defects with plastic surgery often calls for imagination. You have to apply your experience and evaluate tissue characteristics. It is very inspiring work.”
