In the gynecological units, the most common problems treated are menstrual disorders, gynecological causes of abdominal pain, prolapses, urinary incontinence, and matters associated with family planning. The most common gynecological surgical procedures are hysterectomies, prolapse surgeries, procedures related to changes in the uterus and ovaries, and procedures to treat urinary incontinence. The most demanding procedures are, for example, cancer and endometriosis surgeries.

In HUS, there are gynecological units in all of the hospital areas. Throughout the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, Women’s Hospital in Helsinki is the central unit responsible for the surgical and medical treatment of gynecological cancer, the most demanding gynecological surgeries, and abortions performed due to fetus-related causes. Infertility and the most severe hormonal disorders are treated at HUS Reproductive Medicine Unit in Tilkan Viuhka in Ruskeasuo, Helsinki.

Gynecological services treat patients due to miscarriage, heavy bleeding or pain in early pregnancy when an ectopic pregnancy is suspected or there are complications following gynecological surgery.
