Sakari Savolainen

Originally I was supposed to become a neurologist, but I was also interested in surgery. My specialty combined neurology and surgery, and it swept me along. The years of experience have shown that especially when treating exoskeleton patients both patient selection and a good doctor-patient relationship guarantee the best result.

Surgery is only a part of the patient’s treatment. My aim is to create a real connection and trust with my patient and to discuss the treatment options with him or her before the possible decision to go to surgery, also considering other treatment options. Satisfied patients who have received high-quality care make my work rewarding.
