Physicians in the Gynecologic Cancer Program care exclusively for patients with reproductive cancers. The deliver a consistent, coordinated approach that translates into the most optimal treatment for each individual.
As a team, these specialists suggest treatment plans based on a thorough review of many factors, including pathology and radiologic imaging reports, the patient’s health status, reproductive age, type and stage of cancer. Experienced clinical staff, including nurses who care exclusively for women with gynecologic cancer, educate patients and families and provide support from the time of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
Other experts who are a critical part of treatment and recovery include a physical medicine and rehabilitation team that specializes in helping patients manage physical effects that can occur with cancer and its treatment (lymphedema, fatigue, range of motion issues). In addition, a neuro-psychologist assesses and treats women for cognitive effects that may occur with cancer and its treatment through the Neuro-Oncology Cognitive Clinic.
