Young athletes may also need surgery for returning sports after injury

Sometimes also young high level athletes need surgical treatment after sports injury to be able to return to sports again. Many of them are traveling far away to Turku.

Soccer player Myles Culley from USA, gymnast Sani Mäkelä from Helsinki and football player Jennifer Honkala from Vaasa were all operated recently in Turku by orthopaedic surgeon Lasse Lempainen because of chronic injuries.
