The Whole Patient

At the Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, our goal is to treat the whole patient. We provide a team of multidisciplinary specialists with nationally recognized experience in diagnosing and treating cancers of the female reproductive tract. And we recognize that cancer can devastate a woman’s entire life and family, not just her health.
Holistic care at JH may include:

  • Nutrition
  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal medicine/herbologist
  • Massage
  • Image recovery- how a woman feels on the outside, how to protect yourself after chemo/radiation/ wig cutting,
  • Psychological services- licensed clinical social worker
  • Spiritual support for all denominations
  • Sensitivity to cultural diversity and needs
  • Financial counseling

Further, our goal is to provide multidisciplinary care, from diagnosis to treatment to monitoring for recurrence. Women treated early by a gynecological oncologist have twice the survival rates of those not treated by a cancer specialist. That is why we encourage our patients to seek our care from the beginning.
