Treatments and Support Services
At the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, each patient’s care is led by one of our expert gynecologic oncologists. Studies have shown that women treated early by a gynecologic oncologist tend to have better prognoses and better survival rates than those not treated by a cancer specialist.
Our gynecologic oncologists are cross-trained in radical pelvic and upper abdominal surgery — including procedures of the bowel, bladder, spleen and liver — vulvar surgery and radical, minimally invasive surgery. Your treatment regimen may include one or more of the following:
In addition, all patients receive comprehensive support and counseling to help them manage the emotional and lifestyle changes that accompany cancer.
Minimally Invasive Surgery for Gynecologic Cancer | Q&A
Dr. Edward Tanner discusses the many benefits of minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of gynecologic cancers and his pioneering research in sentinel lymph node biopsy and single-site robotic surgery.
Surgical Quality and Innovation
To provide our patients with the greatest chances for a successful outcome, we continuously innovate our surgical techniques as well as the quality of our care. Our survival rates for women with uterine and ovarian cancers are consistently above the national average. Through innovative surgical quality and patient safety programs, including a comprehensive initiative to bring more minimally invasive surgery to patients, we have significantly reduced our surgical infection, readmission and life-threatening blood clot rates.
Our patient satisfaction ratings also reflect our position among the top performers at Johns Hopkins, which we attribute to our exceptional nursing care, multidisciplinary clinical expertise, supportive services and outstanding patient outcomes. Furthermore, we strive to see patients within just a few days of referral, as we understand the stress of receiving a new cancer diagnosis.
