The main guidelines for action are a surgical treatment of benign and malignant tumors, as well as pre – cancer pathology of female genital zone. We also carry out gynecological and reconstructive – plastic surgeries during prolapse of the small pelvis organs.

Annually, the service carries out more than 300 surgical interventions.

The level of technical equipment and specialists’ skills allow to perform examinations and treatment of the patients in strict accordance with protocols and standards of NCCN  (National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines in OncologyTM), thanks to which we achieve the survival index, comparable with a such in the clinics of the USA and Europe.

A special place occupies a minimum invasive surgery. Nairi Medical Center is the only clinic in Armenia, where we perform the most difficult oncogynecological surgeries by laparoscopic method. The clinic is equipped in full volume with the modern endoscopic technique from Karl Storz.

In the Clinic works multidisciplinary group ESGO (European Association of Gynecologists - Oncologists) – Tumor Board.  The group includes Professor Nickolas Reed (medical oncology, radio oncology) – Head of Beatson Cancer Center, (Glasgow, Scotland), Professor Paolo Zola (surgery, medical oncology) – head of Oncology Clinic of Turin Medical University (Italy), Professor Sigurd Lacks (pathology) – Head of Clinical Pathology Department of Gratz Medical Universit, (Austria).

Planning of examinations and treatment for each individual case is accomplished during conference of multidisciplinary group with involvement of high skilled specialists of Nairi medical center (chemotherapist, radiologist, pathologist, anesthesiologist - expert in resuscitation, as well as the representatives of adjoining specialties). Besides, the main target is a strictly individual approach to each particular patient, taking into consideration the whole variety of factors that characterize the disease as well as the entire organism.

Hence, our patients have an opportunity to be examined and treated at the level of the most high and modern international standards without leaving Armenia.
