Gynaecology and obstetrics

We offer complete care in both obstetrics and gynaecology. We provide emergency and planned care for women with gynaecological diseases and disorders and women with normal and complicated pregnancies and births.


We see women with normal and complicated pregnancies and births. We aim to make our patients feel safe and ensure that their pregnancies and births are safe.

Our staff have extensive experience and expertise in specialised maternity care, ultrasound diagnostics, antenatal care and postnatal care.

Our maternity departments focus strongly on the prevention of birth injuries, as well as having extensive experience and stringent demands when it comes to safe foetal monitoring.

We also have a successful programme of care for women with gestational diabetes, and our outcomes are some of the best in the world.

We are the referral body in southern Sweden for the care of women at risk of premature birth, and for newborn and unborn babies with heart problems from most of Sweden.


In gynaecology, we perform advanced surgery and care for women with complications of pregnancy up to week 22.

Gynaecological activities at SUH are divided between Lund and Malmö. Gynaecological emergencies are treated at both sites 24 hours a day. Ultrasound examinations for gynaecological conditions are also carried out at both sites.

Malmö has a regional endometriosis centre with a care team comprising a gynaecologist, a midwife, a nurse, a sexologist, a psychologist and ultrasound expertise.

Malmö also has a pelvic floor centre, within the same facility as the Malmö Gynaecology Clinic, with a care team comprising a gynaecologist, a urologist, a surgeon, a urotherapist and a sexologist. The abortion service is also focused on Malmö and is one of the largest units in Sweden.

Lund has regional responsibility for gynaecological cancer surgery and also performs surgery for complicated benign conditions such as endometriosis.

Lund is also one of four national centres for vulvar and ovarian cancer surgery and treatment. We have more than a decade of experience of robot-assisted keyhole surgery for uterine and cervical cancer.


We conduct development and research in order to improve gynaecological healthcare at SUH in a number of different areas. This research focuses on women’s reproductive health in both the short and the long term.

Clinical and patient-centred research includes gynaecological surgery, gynaecological cancer, urogynaecology, gynaecological endocrinology, reproductive medicine, preventive medicine (cervical cancer, contraception), sexology, obstetrics and perinatology, invasive and non-invasive prenatal diagnosis and reproductive epidemiology.

Furthermore, our researchers are also involved in clinical trials and interdisciplinary and translational research projects where links between experimental, clinical and health science questions are identified.

We are part of a number of national and international networks, with active international exchange of researchers. All in all, this creates a synergy between research and healthcare which lays the foundation for healthcare development and implementation of new methods and innovations that benefit our patients.
