Two doctors assess forms in a hospital

The Gynecologic Oncology Program at Smilow Cancer Hospital brings together a team of clinicians whose focus is to care for women with gynecologic cancer in our dedicated Women’s Center. Our physicians are board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and in the subspecialty of gynecologic oncology, which unites surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy into the oncologic management of patients. The specific diseases treated by the Gynecologic Oncology Program are as follows:

  • Precancerous changes of the vulva, vagina and cervix, including dysplasia and carcinomas-in-situ
  • Premalignant changes of the endometrium including adenomatous hyperplasias
  • Vulvar cancer
  • Vaginal cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Fallopian tube cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Gestational trophoblastic disease
  • Soft tissue tumors of the pelvis

Through our Ovarian Cancer Early Detection Program our physicians and scientists strive to improve the prognosis of women with ovarian and other reproductive cancers and pioneer viable new treatments for these patients. Early detection, exceptional clinical care, and the development of novel treatment advances are the three cornerstones of the program.
