Adjunct Professor of Neurosurgery
At Helsinki Hospital, Jari Siironen is in charge of spinal surgery, neurosurgical intensive monitoring, and assessment of the effectiveness of treatment. He considers it important to increase every patient’s freedom of choice and freedom of movement. The EU and the Finnish government have emphasized this, and Helsinki Hospital promotes this development.
“We are flexible, patient-oriented and swift. As a whole, we help to improve the efficiency of healthcare. Helsinki Hospital can complement public healthcare services, working in parallel with the public sector and easing its workload,” Siironen says.
His perspective on being a doctor is clear: in many respects, it is the best profession in the world.
“This is a very interesting and motivating job, with the goal of helping people. I chose surgery because I find it very inspiring. There’s never a dull day at work. During my studies I realized that neurosurgery combines theory and practice in a unique way,” Siironen describes.
Siironen began working on his doctoral dissertation on neuroregeneration while still a medical student.
“For some reason, I’ve always been interested in difficult disorders, acute treatment, and acute situations. This is probably partly due to the fact that, even though the patient’s condition may be severe, neurosurgical intensive care can always improve the situation,” he says.
In recent years, Jari Siironen has focused on spinal surgery.
