Surgery Whether visceral, thoracic, cardiovascular, maxillo-facial, plastic, cosmetic or reconstructive, surgery is a major focus of our activity. Our surgeons, who are experts in their specialities, are trained in the latest techniques, including robotic surgery, and offer you the technique best tailored to your health concern. They prioritise your safety and comfort during the operation. In liaison with our anaesthetists, they ensure optimal pain management after the operation. To reduce the risk of infection to a minimum, they apply the hospital hygiene rules developed by our specialists, recognised as a global benchmark by the WHO. Out of the 25’000 surgical procedures performed each year at HUG, almost one hundred involve organ transplants. Exceptional surgery that saves lives.
