Gustave Roussy is the premier European Cancer Centre.
The Institute was founded as a result of the motivation of Professor Gustave Roussy, the father of the concepts of "cross-boundary working " and "multi-disciplinary patient management". For 70 years it has been developing an approach to oncology which remains faithful to its founder's values: innovation, dynamism, cooperation and benevolence. All of this is built on the three guiding principles: patient care, research and teaching.
The Institute has expertise in the management of rare cancers and complex tumours. It treats all cancers at every stage of life. It offers its patients individualised care combining innovation and a humane approach. The treatment is important but so is quality of life, physical, psychological and social.
Gustave Roussy is a hospital for specialist referral of complex cases and rare tumours. It can bring to bear skills in medical oncology, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, interventional radiology and reconstructive surgery.
