Softis – Soft Tissue Surgery

The soft tissue surgery group (Softis) studies small tissue diseases that require surgery and their diagnosis, treatment and treatment outcome assessment. The research topics stem mainly from ideas gained in the process of everyday patient care. At the moment, ongoing doctoral thesis projects focus primarily on urogenital diseases. Studies are carried out on privately owned dogs, with the permission of their owners. Such research would not be possible without the assistance of Finnish dog owners and their commendable interest in research projects.
