Skin disease specialist Ville Kiiski treats all types of skin diseases from acne to skin cancers, as well as working on all treatment stages of sexually transmitted diseases from diagnosis to surgical procedures. He always knew that he wanted to be a doctor, because the human body and its relationship with its surroundings have intrigued him since childhood. Skin diseases combine visuality and working with your hands, which made the choice of specialisation easy for Ville.
“Skin diseases come with a very extensive range of diagnoses and procedures, so the visual aspect and dexterity are always present in your work. The best aspect of the work is satisfied patients who obtain help with their conditions. For example, acne can have a huge mental effect on a young patient, and it is extremely rewarding to see treatment working and the patient’s condition improving. In the case of skin diseases, account must be taken of the psychological aspects and the patient’s quality of life, alongside the physical symptoms.”
During consultation, Ville emphasises the importance of establishing strong contact with the patient. It is important that a doctor has time to listen to the patient and discuss alternative treatment methods. Ville’s goal is to optimise the treatment result in order to improve the patient’s condition as comprehensively as possible in every case. Continuous development is also important to Ville. He completed his doctorate at the University of Helsinki. New knowledge and its application in the treatment of patients are the keys to better professional skills and treatment results.
