Biography

Keijo Mäkelä is the Head of the Department and the Head of the Research Unit at Turku University Hospital, Unit of Musculoskeletal Surgery. He is a specialist of Surgery and Orthopaedics and Traumatology, and his clinical work has focused on treating patients with hip and knee arthroplasty since 2004. His work and research has focused on improving arthroplasty surgery using quality registers. He is Chairman of the Finnish Arthroplasty Register and Nordic Arthroplasty Register Association (NARA). His has been a member of the Steering Group of the International Society for Arthroplasty Registries (ISAR) for 4 years time. He has run several randomized controlled trials with co-workers and helped to develop local, national and international collaboration and registry datasets.



Research

MD, PhD Keijo Mäkelä did his thesis on total hip arthroplasty based on the Finnish Arthroplasty Register data in 2010. His research has focused on developing national and international quality registers of arthroplasty surgery with special interest in open access reporting of survivorship estimates of arthroplasty devices, and rapid publication of scientific reports of arthroplasty surgery data. Currently Keijo Mäkelä is the Head of Research Unit at Turku University Hospital, Unit of Musculoskeletal Surgery. The research is focused on utilizing national and international quality registers. Based on combined Nordic data (NARA database) there are currently 20 scientifc papers published with focus on surgical methods, hip and knee arthroplasty devices and international comparisons of treatment culture. There are 10 scientific papers submitted or ongoing. The Finnish Arthroplasty Register (FAR) data contents was revised under lead of Mäkelä. Publication activity based on FAR is currently lively. This has already lead to several changes in treatment practices, such as decrease in use of uncemented total hip arthroplasty devices in elderly patients due to early reoperations. Keijo Mäkelä has supervised three thesis works and is currently supervising nine doctoral students. He has received various grants from eg. NordForsk. 



Teaching

MD, PhD Keijo Mäkelä is an adjunct professor (docent) at Turku University. He has been teaching arthroplasty surgery to orthopaedic residents since 2004. He is a frequently invited speaker on his areas of interest both at his own clinic, in the national orthopedic forum and also in international courses and congresses. Keijo Mäkelä has supervised three thesis works and is currently supervising nine doctoral students. He has supervised eight undergraduate medical students.
