Mission of the Gynecology Division
The Gynecology Division of the HUG is one of the most important ones in Switzerland.
The division includes numerous specialties, including oncology (gynecological cancers), perineology (prevention and treatment of urinary incontinence), and reproductive medicine. The division also carries out specialized consultations about ovaries and female genital mutilation. It provides care for women who are victims of assault and violence, or who are seeking a gynecological check-up, contraception, or a termination of pregnancy.
