About us

In 2004, Prof. Dr. med. Daniel Fink was appointment chairman and director of the Department of Gynecology at the University Zurich. He is an internationally renowned expert in the field of female cancers (incl. breast cancer). Prof. Dr. Daniel Fink is currently President of the Swiss Association of Gynecological Oncology (Swiss AGO).

The Department of Gynecology at the University Hospital Zurich is an international center of competence for gynecology, gynecological oncology and minimally invasive surgery. The Department of Gynecology is associated with the Breast Cancer Center University Hospital Zurich which is certified by EUSOMA (European Society of Breast Cancer Specialists).

Diagnosis and treatment in the field of gynecology (incl. breast diseases) are carried out according to modern, international standards. It is our utmost objective to guarantee the best quality possible in medical treatment and human care.

One of our particular focus areas are invasive treatment methods, offering all possibilities of classic surgery as well as minimally invasive surgery and the use of the daVinci robotics according to the patient’s needs. In addition to invasive treatment methods, we are also offering innovative systemic therapies (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy). Patients are also offered the possibility to take part in international clinical trials and be treated with new medications that are not yet available on the market.

At our Center for Urogynecology, we are offering differential diagnostic procedures and a broad spectrum of drug and invasive treatment methods for women suffering from incontinency and pelvic organ prolapse, incl. minimally invasive procedures as well as modern sling and synthetic mesh implants.

For women suffering from endometriosis we are offering all invasive and drug treatment methods.

To ensure an individual treatment on the highest level possible, we are consulting all core competencies of our university and neighboring disciplines at the earliest possible date.
