Strengths of the HUG Gynecologic Oncology Unit

Minimally invasive surgery

Made possible through the evolution of medical imaging, minimally invasive surgical techniques are used to make a diagnosis or to remove tumors.

They improve your comfort and speed up your recovery after the procedure.

Cancer and fertility

Some types of cancer and some cancer care techniques can have an impact on the fertility of the person who is sick.

Progress has been made in this area. Today, medical techniques preserve the possibility of having a child following treatment.
