Gynecologic oncology focuses on treating cancers of the pelvis and female reproductive systems, including ovarian, cervical, endometrial, vulvar, and vaginal cancers.
- Endometrial cancer, a cancer in the lining of the uterus, is the most common gynecologic cancer.
- Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer.
- Cervical cancer remains a powerful health threat around the world. Nearly all women with cervical cancer have human papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV vaccine can protect against many strains of the virus. Routine Pap test screening has reduced deaths due to cervical cancer by 74 percent over the past 50 years.
- Vulvar cancer is a rare form of gynecologic cancer, accounting for only about four percent of reproductive cancers in women.
Our gynecologic oncologists provide thorough evaluations and treatment plans for cancers and precancerous lesions. We also evaluate women at high risk for gynecologic cancers because of their personal and family history.
Our patients have access to comprehensive cancer treatment and care, including the latest medical oncology and radiation therapy treatments. If you need surgery, we use minimally invasive, laparoscopic, or robotic techniques whenever possible.
You may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial, depending on your age, cancer type, stage of cancer, previous treatments, and general medical history. If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, research our open clinical trials and talk with your doctor to determine if a trial is right for you.
Weekly pathology review and tumor conferences are a hallmark of our program, giving you the benefit of a team-based approach to your care.
If needed, our unique psycho-oncology program offers evaluation, therapy, and referrals with our full-time psychologist.
We work closely with your primary care physicians to provide you the best care possible from diagnosis through survivorship.
