Jyrki Salmenkivi

Licentiate of Medicine, Orthopedist and Traumatologist

Orthopedist and traumatologist Jyrki Salmenkivi performs surgery and has a private practice in spinal surgery at Helsinki Hospital.

“I’m inspired by the opportunity to perform spinal surgery at Helsinki Hospital. In addition, it is very motivating to be a member of the hospital’s enthusiastic professional team,” Salmenkivi says.

The desire and opportunity to help are his most important motivators at work.

“Deciding to become a doctor certainly involves a certain calling and view of the world. In this respect, surgery is very tangible and often rewarding work. During my studies, it gradually became clear to me that I wanted to specialize in surgery,” he says.
