The HUG Gynecology Division has specific expertise in pediatric and adolescent gynecological treatment. A specialized and multidisciplinary medical team receives girls and adolescents at an office dedicated to them. It receives over 1,500 patients per year.

The pediatric or adolescent gynecology consultation is a special opportunity to change the relationship the girl or adolescent has with her body and her genitals. This first-line consultation also allows for screening, education and prevention (pregnancy, STDs).
