The Gynecologic Radiation Oncology Service is nationally recognized in the field of radiation oncology for providing comprehensive clinical care for women with primary cancers of the uterus, cervix, vulva, vagina, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. Centered on reproductive-tract tissues, gynecologic radiation therapy requires exceptional precision to minimize the impact of treatment on sexual, hormonal, and reproductive functions. Our radiation oncologists' extensive knowledge of reproductive anatomy and physiology, combined with their expertise in radiation therapy, make them exceptionally qualified to treat women with gynecologic cancers.
