Multidisciplinary Patient Care
Our program offers each patient a coordinated treatment plan involving experts from a wide array of gynecologic cancer specialties. These include gynecologic oncology surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, and oncology nurses who only treat patients with gynecologic cancer.
Our multidisciplinary care approach provides each patient with a treatment plan focused on their individual needs. We work together with the patient and their referring physician throughout treatment to ensure the best possible outcomes.
We also offer free educational programs and support services to address the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of patients and their families.
Innovative Approaches to Cancer Care
We treat thousands of patients annually, and studies show that such high-volume experience results in improved patient outcomes. Specialization also improves outcomes. Our patients are treated by surgeons, oncologists and radiologists and pathologists who specialize in gynecologic oncology. Studies confirm that ovarian cancer patients who are initially treated by gynecologic oncologists have improved survival rates.
We offer our patients the most advanced diagnostics through imaging and pathology and the latest surgical procedures and radiation therapies. Among our unique treatment options is the Francis H. Burr Proton Beam Therapy Center, one of only a few centers in the United States to offer proton beam radiation, which targets tumors precisely while minimizing damage to healthy tissue.
In addition, we are among the few centers nationally that offer intraoperative radiation therapy, which delivers a large, precise dose of radiation directly into the tumor area during surgery.
