Gynaecology and obstetrics_

Gynaecology and obstetrics are the medical specialisations dedicated to women. Gynaecology encompasses everything related to the female genital organs, while obstetrics relates to the care of pregnant women.

Obstetric gynaecology is a particularly complex specialisation in medicine and surgery.

Gynaecology is a medical and surgical specialisation which focuses on women and in particular on benign or malignant diseases of the female reproductive organs (vulva, vagina, uterus, Fallopian tubes, ovaries and breasts). These diseases may require either medical or surgical treatment either by laparotomy (an incision through the abdomen) or by laparoscopy (minimally invasive surgery).

Amongst other things, the following pathologies (benign and malignant) may require the care of a gynaecologist associated with the Clinique de La Source:

  • Diseases of the genitourinary system (incontinence)
  • Genital prolapse
  • Female cancers (breast, uterus, etc.)

Obstetrics focuses on pregnant women and their future babies. Obstetrics is therefore responsible for caring for two patients and requires mastery of a certain number of complex techniques: medicine and surgery for women, as well as ultrasound and prenatal diagnostics. The gynaecologist obstetrician is supported by midwives in caring for his patients.

The Clinique de La Source has the most sophisticated surgical facilities possible. Its operating theatres are equipped with the latest video surgery systems and our operating division also owns the da Vinci surgical robot.

The use of the da Vinci robot may be recommended for a certain number of surgical interventions, depending on the medical needs determined by your gynaecologist. For further information on the da Vinci, please visit the pages regarding robotic surgery, which appear under the Specialisations section.

Surrounded by a medical team and experienced gynaecologist obstetricians, each patient at the Clinique de La Source enjoys the benefit of a holistic treatment approach. 
The Clinique de La Source maintains a round the clock service seven days a week and a swift response time, in close collaboration with the medical Centre at La Source (emergencies).
