Our doctors’ approach to surgicaltreatment is what sets our gynecological oncologists apart and makes the JohnsHopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service a nationally recognized treatmentcenter for cancers of the female reproductive tract.
When cancer is first diagnosed, itis critical to consider a surgical approach, if possible. Our surgeons are pro-active in theirtreatment plans, returning to surgery as the primary choice in treatment ifappropriate. Removing as much of atumor as possible, along with any other distant growths can double a women’soutcome of survival.
Our focus on minimally invasive surgical procedures whenappropriate, and the use of robotically assisted minimally invasive surgery formanagement of endometrial and cervical cancer as well as ovarian masses/cancer,makes our Center an excellent choice for surgical treatment.
Our doctors have available cuttingedge technologies including:
- Robotic surgery
- Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy
