Gynecologic oncologists are devoted exclusively to the treatment of cancerous or pre-cancerous gynecological conditions. No two people - or cancers - are alike. We form a team with other physicians to create a treatment plan specific to your cancer.
What is a gynecologic oncologist?
A gynecologic oncologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating cancers that are located on a woman’s reproductive organs, including cervial, endometrial (uterine), ovarian vaginal and vulvar cancers.
Gynecologic oncologists have completed 4 years of obstetrics and gynecology residency and then completed 3 to 4 years of additional specialized training through a gynecologic oncology fellowship. The gynecologic oncology fellowship involves intensive training about surgical, chemotherapeutic, radiation, and research techniques that are critical to providing the best care for gynecologic cancers.
