What is gynecologic oncology?
Our Gynecologic Oncology Program specializes in treating women with cancer of the reproductive organs, including cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar cancers. We target gynecologic cancer with some of the most aggressive treatments available, and support you with therapies to boost your immune system, reduce pain and improve your quality of life.
Why we’re different
Our gynecologic oncology team has expertise in treating gynecologic malignancies using advanced technology that helps to spare healthy tissue. We first use sophisticated, minimally invasive technology to detect tumors and determine the type and stage of cancer. Then, we'll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and preferences.
At CTCA, we bring innovative therapies to our patients as quickly as possible. If we believe the disease is not responding to treatment, your care team will offer you other options. If you want to preserve your fertility during treatment, your oncologist will discuss with you a variety of fertility-sparing procedures and whether they may be right for you.
How we support you
At CTCA, your cancer team includes gynecologic oncologists and other health experts who work together to tailor treatments to your specific needs.
Throughout your treatment, we’ll also provide integrative oncology services, like nutrition therapy, naturopathic medicine, pain management and physical therapy, to help reduce treatment-related side effects and improve your quality of life.
We also provide support for women who experience sexual side effects as a result of cancer treatment, through our Survivorship Support program.
