Working for over 25 years as a gynecologist, I have had the opportunity to deeply delve into some areas of this interesting specialty. I am a founding member of the Estonian Society of Colposcopy and have acted as a member of the board during the 10 years. I’m committed to offering Estonian women the best possible options for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pre-cancerous cervical cancer, for example, vaccinations against cervical cancer. By organising professional training, working on treatment guidelines and teaching students, I try to keep myself updated with the news of the profession.
In addition, I’m interested in endoscopic gynecological surgery and as a narrower niche I consult and do surgical treatment of endometriosis for patients with more severe forms. I have completed laparoscopic surgery courses at the Laparoscopic Training Center IRCAD in Strasbourg.
