Gynaecology Department

The Gynaecology department is managed by Dr Séverine Alran.

This department works alongside the gynaecology, obstetrics and neonatology departments and has dedicated conventional hospital beds and operating theatres for out-patient treatment.

Treatment for all gynaecological conditions is provided by experienced specialists with access to the latest technology. The department’s systematic objective is to provide each patient with treatment tailored to their condition, with the priority on ensuring that the techniques used are the least invasive available.

The gynaecology department’s strengths reside in the multi-disciplinary dimension of the hospital’s medical staff. This global approach ensures that treatment can be optimal for all of the different fields such as cancer, benign and functional conditions, fibroma, prolapse, incontinence and endometriosis.

The hospital has specific resources including the Institute of Gynaecological Medicine managed by Dr Séverine Alran the head doctor of the gynaecological surgery department.  This institute is specialised in screening programs for gynaecological conditions and the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of menstrual cycle problems. It is also specialised in optimising hormone treatment for women subject to vascular or oncological risks as well as fertility treatment (other than IVF), the treatment of menopause symptoms and women with endometriosis needing hormone treatment.
