Our Gynecologic Cancer Center doctors

How is gynecologic oncology different at City of Hope Phoenix?

At the Gynecologic Cancer Center at City of Hope Phoenix, experts treat your specific gynecologic cancer using standard-of-care and, when appropriate, innovative precision medicine treatments, while also offering evidence-informed supportive care services designed to help patients manage cancer-related side effects and symptoms.

Your care team will manage the full spectrum of your cancer diagnosis and treatment, including reviewing your medical records and history, performing a pelvic exam and lab tests, when necessary, and ordering diagnostic tests and procedures to help design a gynecologic cancer treatment plan tailored just for you.

Your gynecologic oncologist will discuss the available treatment options with you and your caregiver, while also sharing information about how supportive care services may be incorporated into your personalized cancer treatment plan.

Supportive care

Women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers may face unique challenges, both emotional and physical. A reproductive cancer diagnosis may prompt concerns about fertility and sexual health. Side effects of treatment may cause pain and body-image issues. Our multidisciplinary team of doctors and clinicians offer treatment options and supportive care services customized to meet your individual needs. Supportive care services that may be available to gynecologic oncology patients at City of Hope Phoenix include:

Pain management

Pain is a common early symptom of a gynecologic cancer, and may occur when a tumor presses on nerves, bones or organs. Many gynecologic cancer patients also experience pain following treatments like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

At City of Hope, pain management physicians are part of a multidisciplinary team of doctors and clinicians who focus on evaluating, treating and managing acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) pain for every patient who needs it. The pain management team at City of Hope Phoenix focuses on treating cancer-related pain using both prescription drugs and non-pharmaceutical strategies, so patients can focus on healing while maintaining their quality of life.

Sexual wellness

Gynecologic cancer patients may experience changes to their sexual desire, function and relationships during the treatment journey. Some level of sexual dysfunction affects patients with all types of cancer, but those with gynecologic cancers are especially at risk for symptoms and side effects that may affect sexual health. At City of Hope Phoenix, experts trained in helping patients address physical conditions, such as pelvic floor dysfunction, and psychological challenges that may impair their sexual wellness, are an integral part of every patient’s care team.
