Cancers and Precancerous Conditions We Treat
At the Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, we provide world-renowned gynecologic cancer care. In addition to our expertise in diagnosing and treating cancer, we possess the special clinical expertise to treat “previvors” — women at high-risk for ovarian, fallopian tube, uterine and other gynecologic cancers. This includes women with a personal or family history of premenopausal or male breast cancers, multiple family members with breast and ovarian cancer, multiple family members with either colon or uterine cancer, and those diagnosed with BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations, Lynch syndrome, endometrial hyperplasia or complex ovarian masses and borderline tumors.

In addition to treating these cancers, our Center for Rare Gynecologic Cancers cares for women with uncommon tumor types through cutting-edge treatments and groundbreaking clinical trials.

Advanced Benign Gynecologic Conditions
Women with noncancerous gynecologic conditions also turn to the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service for comprehensive care. Our surgical expertise has brought relief for many women suffering from benign pelvic masses, advanced stage 4 endometriosis and complex fibroids. In addition, we treat women who may be high-risk surgical candidates, including those who have had previous abdominal surgeries and those who are morbidly obese.
