We offer a wide selection of tests, procedures and analyses to prevent, diagnose and monitor as well as treat illnesses. You will usually be referred for tests and procedures by our doctors or nurses. Various blood analysis packages are available without a referral. We perform blood, urine as well as stool tests. We offer all common X-ray imaging, ultrasound examinations and magnetic resonance imaging services. We perform, among other things, ECG, spirometry, Holter monitoring, sleep analysis, Dermtesting for mole examination and several other specific tests. We recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our doctors or nurses in addition to having analyses and tests. They will help interpret the results and give recommendations on how to stay in good health. At Confido, you can have analyses, tests and procedures performed quickly and conveniently. Confido also performs many diagnostic tests for family health centres where the costs are covered by the testing fund and the pricing is based on the price list of the Estonian Health Insurance Fund. This requires a referral by a general practitioner.

    Intra-articular Synvisc injection

    Articular puncture is used to diagnose and treat articular diseases. Sometimes it is necessary to put medicine into the joint to sooth the discomforts. In certain cases we inject hyoluronic acid based gel-like substance (Synvisc ja Synvisc One) into the injured knee.

    Hyoluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that acts as a lubricant and padding for the joint. The injection decreases the discomforts, increases the mobility of the joint and makes the joint heal faster.

    We recommend the Synvisc procedure to those who actively and daily use the injured joint. The procedure is helpful for arthrosis and for all stages of joint damage.

    • Synvisc
      Three Synvisc injections are given within a week. The pain free period lasts up to 12 months. The cost of the injection is 125 euros.
    • Synvisc One
      Synvisc One is injected only once. The pain free period lasts up to 12 months. Cost of the injection is 325 euros.

    How is the procedure performed?

    • First, the doctor will clean the area of the skin where the injection is made and then the joint is punctured with a needle through which the medicine is delivered into the joint.
    • Local anaesthetic is not required for this procedure.
    • The place of the injection is covered with band aid and if necessary, with a bandage.
    • The band aid or bandage has to stay on as long as the doctor prescribes or at least 24 hours.

    Good to know

    • The skin needs to be clean (avoid using oils and ointments).
    • The joint can be moved and leaned on right after the procedure.
    • In very rare cases the joint becomes infected or starts to bleed. If the joint becomes painful and the area around it reddens and swells up and your temperature starts to rise, immediately turn to the doctor who performed the injection for a follow-up examination.
