The Gynecologic Oncology program provides comprehensive care for women with gynecologic malignancies. Women with known or suspected cancers of the female genital tract (vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tube, ovary), are offered a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic options. Our board certified gynecologic oncologists lead a multidisciplinary team to provide coordinated care, from initial consultation through treatment and into surviviorship.
Our surgeons have extensive experience in complex gynecologic surgery including DaVinci robotic surgery, sentinel node mapping, tumor debulking and comprehensive staging. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are offered at convenient outpatient locations.
Patients have access to the latest developments in therapy, including the opportunity to participate in clinical trials through our participation in the National Cancer Institute's NRG Oncology cooperative trial group as well as the Gynecologic Oncology Group.
Patients have access to Genetic counseling, and ovarian cancer risk assessment is available for patients with possible Familial Ovarian Cancer Syndrome. Pretest counseling, genetic testing, and post-test counseling ensure that each patient can make informed decisions to reduce risk. Prophylactic laparoscopic surgery for removal of the tubes/ovaries/uterus is offered when indicated.
Our comprehensive approach includes exceptional nursing support for inpatients and outpatients, as well as access to a full range of supportive services, including nutritional and psychological counseling.
