Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecological Oncology Unit
The Unit for Gynaecological Oncology functions as a clinic within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Tygerberg Academic Hospital in Parow, Cape Town.
As a unit we focus on the diagnosis and management of early and more advanced cancer of the gynaecological system and also on the diagnosis and treatment of pre-cancer lesions. This unit has a long history of excellent clinical management of patients and also of research of international standard. We provide a caring and professional service to the population of the Western Cape and also for patients from further away. We believe in a multi-disciplinary team approach for all clinical management decisions and we have regular contact with related departments within the Tygerberg Academic Hospital.
