AC10 – surgical activities in ten years: this is HUG’s vast project to respond to the 1% annual increase in the population’s needs. The project’s first milestone: the opening in 2017 of six new operating theatres, including two equipped with a robot, in the Gustave Julliard building.
Other steps are planned with:
Located on the 7th and 8th floors of the laboratory building, a new spaced dedicated to training and research into surgery has been set up at HUG. This high-tech training centre is steered by the Swiss Foundation for Innovation and Training in Surgery (SFITS).
Every day, someone has a thyroid operation at HUG. This organ is ablated in the case of cancer or suspected cancer, hyperthyroidism or goitre.
To reduce postoperative complications, HUG’s thoracic and endocrine surgery department uses angiography. This technique is used to control the function of the parathyroid glands during the operation.
HUG received the keys to the new Gustave Julliard hospital building in late 2016.
Tests had been carried out since June in a pilot unit with a view to checking the equipment with the healthcare practitioners and making the final equipment choices.
