Gynecologic Oncology

Physicians trained in gynecologic oncology have special expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers affecting the female reproductive organs. These cancers include malignancies such as:

  • Cervical
  • Uterine
  • Ovarian
  • Vaginal 


Gynecologic oncologists are gynecologists with additional training in the management of these cancers who provide both surgical and drug treatments. They work closely with radiation oncologists and other specialists to provide multidisciplinary care for their patients.  Our surgeons are:
