OI Ljubljana

Division of Surgery

Division of Surgery consists of three departments: department of surgical oncology, department of gynecological oncology and department of anesthesiology and intensive care. Surgical oncology, as with other complementary cancer treatments, is developing into a target treatment, which is less aggressive and achieves results equal or even better than standard treatment. In the past 15 years, we have thus witnessed an expansive use of less aggressive surgical methods in cancer surgery. Considering certain indications, laparoscopic resection of gastrointestinal tumors, which is less traumatic for the organism and thereby also allows for more rapid curing and rehabilitation of patients, may often be as successful as standard surgery.
