The faculty of seven fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologists and three certified nurse practitioners takes pride in delivering exceptional, personalized care to every patient and her family.
Our physicians’ advanced training in the surgical and medical care of gynecologic cancer allows them to comprehensively manage all patients with gynecologic malignancies and pre-malignant conditions. Their advanced surgical care includes expertise in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, fertility-sparing surgery for women with early cancers, and extensive surgery for metastatic and recurrent disease.
Patients are offered the newest chemotherapy treatments through clinical trials of the National Cancer Institute’s NRG Oncology Group, as well as the nation’s leading pharmaceutical companies.
Our specialists work closely with our allied experts in medical oncology, surgical oncology and radiation oncology here at UC, as well as pain management, nutritional and home care teams, in order to tailor the best course of therapy for each of our patients.
