Gynecologic Oncology (Cancer)
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of cancer and pre-cancerous conditions of the female reproductive system. Through our convenient locations
, we provide a full scope of diagnostic, therapeutic and treatment options. Our advanced surgical training, with procedures that range from extensive pelvic surgery to minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures, offer patients the latest options in gynecologic cancer care. We provide comprehensive cancer care to patients and collaborate with the Divisions of Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology when needed.
Comprehensive and Coordinated Cancer Care
Our board-certified and fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologists
see patients who have received abnormal results, those who are at risk for cancer due to family history, and those who need or are recovering from a variety of gynecologic cancer related issues.
Our doctors use the latest techniques, working with teams from medical oncology and radiation oncology, to provide the most comprehensive and coordinated cancer care available. Services include:
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Laparoscopic and robotically assisted cancer surgery
- Chemotherapy (intravenous and intraperitoneal)
- Laser surgery
- Hormone therapy
- Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), which allows for precise radiation doses to navigate to specific areas within the tumor through three-dimensional imaging
- Fertility-sparing surgical techniques
Leading Research in Gynecological Cancer
In addition, we offer the most current clinical trials for treatment of gynecologic cancer as members of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) . The Gynecologic Oncology Group (or GOG) is a national cooperative of institutions dedicated to the care of women with gynecologic cancer and sponsored by the National Cancer Institute . Patients who participate in GOG studies are monitored by our research nurse and data manager in addition to their doctors, effectively adding an extra layer of support to the care we provide.
