Our Gynecologic Oncology Services include:
Advanced Gynecological Surgery
Gynecologic Oncology is a specialty field where our team focuses on treating women with pelvic malignancies, including cancer of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina and vulva. When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and menorrhagia or excessive bleeding. Our team of surgeons has extensive experience in advanced gynecologic surgery to provide you with the care you need most.
Minimally Invasive Surgery & Robotic Surgery
The use of minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery for gynecological cancers has been a critical step forward for successful treatment of patients. Both laparoscopic and robotic surgery can treat a variety of gynecologic condition including cancer, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, and more.
The process of laparoscopic and robotic surgery begins with the surgeon making small incisions and using a tiny probe or camera to examine and identify the suspect areas. Additionally, the 3-D imaging of the robotic system allows for excellent visualization and the instruments used are manipulated via computer by a skilled surgeon. We can then identify cancerous or precancerous growths and remove “suspicious” tissue for immediate evaluation with the utmost precision and control. These methods both minimize the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
Chemotherapy and Immunotherapy Treatment
We are equipped with a state of the art infusion treatment center with a skilled chemotherapy team to treat gynecologic malignancies. Our center is designed to offer a comforting, calm environment for all of our patients.
Our experienced infusion nurses work closely with our providers to ensure the best care and proper implementation of each patient’s treatment plan. We are always here throughout the treatment process to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We aim to relieve suffering and provide the best possible quality of life for people facing the pain, symptoms and stresses of serious illness. Often referred to as palliative care, supportive care is appropriate at any age and at any stage of an illness. It can be provided along with treatments that are meant to cure. In short, you want to feel better and feel supported to have more control over your care and our team at Women’s Cancer Care Associates is here to provide you with the best care possible.
At Women’s Cancer Care Associates, we believe gynecologic research and clinical trials are critical to advancing treatments to help fight cancer. We continue to be actively engaged in the latest research and participate in clinical trials for new and existing surgical technologies in an effort to provide patients with the best of care.
