Gynecology Department


We perform major operations and procedures in the areas of gynecology and gynecologic oncology.
We specialize in the treatment of complex disorders of the pelvic floor, like urinary incontinence, genital prolapse and endometriosis.

We provide hydrolaparoscopy-assisted options for diagnosing women infertility.
We hospitalize and provide expert care to high-risk patients during the first months of pregnancy.
Whenever possible, we choose minimally invasive surgical techniques which do not leave widespread post-operative scars and require a shorter hospital stay.

The vaginal route, if applicable, is the most preferred and commonly used surgical approach to perform a gynecologic surgery. The second preferred option is the endoscopic approach ( laparoscopy and hysteroscopy ). It is only when neither transvaginal nor laparoscopic approach is possible that we use the abdominal approach ( a classical surgical incision through the abdominal wall ) with preference for transverse suprapubic incisions. The latter approach is chosen in merely 20% of all surgical interventions.

We perform over 2000 operations and gynecologic procedures and more than 2000 c-sections yearly.

Our patients stay in 2-, 3- and 4-person rooms.
There is also a 5-person day ward designed for patients having day-case procedures that require a short hospital stay of several hours.

We have the latest generation of sophisticated equipment supporting minimally invasive surgery which:

  • enables the performance of complex operations without leaving large post-opetative scars
  • reduces the risk of intra- and post-operative complications
  • requires only a 2 - 3-day in-patient stay
  • guarantees short recovery time and quick return to a regular routine
