Dr. Priit Kasenõmm graduated from the medical faculty of the University of Tartu in 1999. In 2005 he completed PhD studies. After specialization he worked as an ENT surgeon and since 2010 he is a Head of the Department of Otorinolaryngology of Tartu University Hospital.
Dr. P. Kasenõmm has special interest in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, including cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the nose and ear. He provides his patients with effective and most advanced plastic surgery procedures of the nose and ears in the safest possible environment. Dr. Kasenõmm’s philosophy in plastic surgery emphasizes natural results, restoration of anatomy and improving function, careful handling of delicate cartilaginous and bony structures, preferring remodeling or reorientation over aggressive resections and heavy grafting.
The Hospital of Reconstructive Surgerywas founded at Keila Hospital initially under the name of Keila Cardiac Clinic in October 1993. Due to focusing on reconstructive surgery the name was changed into Hospital of Reconstructive Surgery in October 11, 2004. Our services included then and include still mainly cardiovascular surgery to which reconstructive plastic surgery has been added. In layman’s terms - we restore form and function, mainly regarding cardiovascular surgery. We can also restore internal and external defects caused by age or an accident, such as problems with breasts, obesity, varicose veins or traumatic injuries. Approximately 20 000 patients have been treated in the Hospital of Reconstructive Surgery within our 10 years of operation. There are about 600 patients being treated in our hospital annually, in additon to over a thousand outpatients. The Hospital of Reconstructive Surgery moved to the capital city of Estonia, Tallinn to the premises of the Magdaleena Hospital in October 2004. As a result, the number of our staff has grown and the working conditions have impoved significantly. At present, our clinic includes a surgical ward with a total of 28 beds, an operations’ block with 5 operating rooms and an intensive care unit with 11 beds.

I am Jüri Kullamaa, surgeon of Plastilise Kirurgia OÜ. I have performed plastic surgeries for about 30 years. I started in 1988 with aesthetic plastic operations in Tallinn in the Tallinn Medical Centre of Plastic Surgery and Cosmetology. While in the first years primarily the problems of the face and neck area were dealt with in Estonia, all the operations can be performed on the body since the establishment of the inpatient department. From among approximately 600 operations performed a year, most are breast operations.
All my consultations and operations take place in Kotka Erahaigla, where there are modern facilities for servicing patients. I am a founding member of the Baltic Association of Maxillofacial and Plastic Surgery, and member of the Estonian Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Society (EPRS).
