In special cases, immunotherapy or antibody therapy is recommended. In addition, the department has in its arsenal various methods of naturopathic therapy.
In the field of cancer surgery, there is offered the whole range of surgical treatment of ovarian, uterine, cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers in compliance with international standards. If indicated, even major cancer surgery may be minimally invasive. This ensures the highest possible quality of life for patients.
