At Mount Carmel, we understand that a diagnosis of gynecologic cancer can change your life. That’s why we’ve put together the very best people, technologies and resources to improve early detection, advance treatment and enhance your recovery from cervical, endometrial, ovarian, and uterine cancers.
Our gynecology oncology physicians come from multiple disciplines and work closely together to gain new understanding of gynecological cancers and develop strategies for care. Using that knowledge and experience, they then design customized treatment programs that offer the most precise and effective therapy available. In fact, all our newly diagnosed patients' cases are reviewed by a team of specialty physicians to ensure the appropriate and most effective care is delivered.
Following that expert evaluation, our team offers a diversity of treatment options, including surgery for complex gynecologic malignancies. Among those surgical options are laparoscopic staging procedures for endometrial and cervical cancers and for radical hysterectomies. This less-invasive approach results in decreased pain and recovery time, allowing you to return to your normal routines within two weeks rather than four to six.
We also offer a full spectrum of medical resources and supportive staff members to assist you in your journey through gynecologic cancer, including clinical trials, our Cancer Risk Program and expert Cancer Patient Navigators who will walk hand in hand with you through your treatment and beyond.
