  • Team approach

    Treating cancer can be complicated. Our doctors, nurse practitioners and nurses work together with many experts who care for people with cancer. Those specialists include those in radiation oncology, immunotherapy, cancer genetics, psychologic oncology, pain and symptom management, palliative care and gynecologic pathology. Our combined expertise means you get the best possible care.

  • Personalized care

    When you’ve been diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, you might feel intimidated. Together, we’ll come up with a treatment plan customized to you and based on your diagnosis, treatment options and goals. Some of the nation’s leading cancer experts will work together to create this personalized plan. Our team of doctors will discuss your case during regularly scheduled cancer care meetings. 

  • Clinical trials

    As an academic medical center, we are able to offer our patients access to clinical trials that are studying new treatments for gynecologic cancers. This means you may have access to new treatments that are not yet widely available elsewhere.
