Gynaecologic Oncology

Clinical Service » Gynaecologic Oncology

INTRODUCTION

Gynaecologic oncology is a division of the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital . For over forty years, we have been providing specialized care for women with gynaecologic cancer. With a multidisciplinary approach, we are able to provide a full range of treatment such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and palliative care. We are a tertiary referral centre for both common and rare gynaecological malignancies, with patients referred from both private and government hospitals in Hong Kong and Macau.

Our division is recognized by the Hong Kong College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists, Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists, UK and the Royal Australasian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists for the training of gynaecological oncologists. A special programme is offered for overseas fellows or scholars. The division also provides training in gynaecological oncology to basic and advanced trainees in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in Hong Kong and abroad. We also contribute to undergraduate teaching where gynaecologic oncology is in the core curriculum of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

Our division is active in both basic and clinical research. There are laboratory facilities and expertise in immunoassays, biomolecular studies on DNA, RNA and protein. We have multi-centre studies on cervical cancer and gestational trophoblastic disease follow-up programme and clinical trials in collaboration with the other departments in the University of Hong Kong, including Department of Pathology, Department of Clinical Oncology, Department of Psychiatry, Department of Diagnostic Radiology and allied health services including Physiotherapy.
