Skåne University Hospital is the referral centre for all radiation therapy patients in southern Sweden. Every year, 4,500 patients receive radiation therapy at the first Scandinavian facility to install TomoTherapy HiArt System, which is available together with brachytherapy and isotope treatment. Collaboration between oncologists and physicists has brought the team of experts in isotope treatment to the forefront of international methodology development.

Based on international research collaboration and modern technology, cutting edge expertise is available for radiation or multidisciplinary treatment of:

  • central nervous system tumours
  • spread melanoma
  • lymphoma
  • sarcoma
  • gastrointestinal cancer
  • gynaecological cancer
  • urological cancer

Our teams pioneered robotic surgery for gynaecological cancer and several benign conditions – a field our teams lead in Europe and internationally regarding volumes, applications, and publications. Annually, 300 operations are performed mainly for gynecological cancers but also for complex benign disorders such as endometriosis, genital malformations, genital organ prolapse and various procedures in morbidly obese patients.
