The gynaecological inpatient ward treats patients who require specialized gynaecological care.

We treat patients with conditions in the field of general gynaecology and in the field of gynaecological cancers. Most of our patients attend for elective surgery or some other treatment and examinations. In addition, much of our activities relate to acute gynaecological and obstetric emergency situations. A large proportion of operations are day-surgical. Patients attending for day-surgical procedures and patients coming from home go straight to the 4th floor of the Lighthouse hospital, to the day surgical unit which operates in connection with the surgical department.

Our department operates a gynaecological emergency services unit 24/7. A referral is required, unless otherwise agreed with patients who have an ongoing care relationship with the department. We treat acute pregnancy-related problems up until pregnancy week 20 at the emergency unit. Pregnancy-related problems later in pregnancy are managed by the pregnancy emergency services.
