Treatment

Surgery

Gynecological surgery combines a unique blend of medical oncology and complex surgery. Gynecological oncology surgery can be performed through minimally invasive procedures used to remove cancer tissues. Surgical procedures for gynecologic cancers include:

  • Debulking Surgery: Removes as much of the tumor as possible, typically in preparation for chemotherapy so there will be less tumor to treat
  • Hysterectomy: A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove all or part of the uterus.
  • Salpingo-Oophorectomy: surgery to remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes
  • Lymph Node Removal: surgery t removes some or all lymph nodes affected by cancer
Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is one of the most common cancer treatment options and involves the use of medicines to treat cancer. You and your doctor will work together to choose which drug or combination of drugs will be used, as well as your dosages, frequency, and length of treatment.
