At the Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, our goal is to treat the whole patient, not just her cancer. We recognize that cancer affects a woman’s entire life and family. This is why our team of experts works together to develop a personalized care plan for every patient. Along with medical treatments, we offer a range of complementary care options, including holistic and mental health services for patients and their families.

  • Image RecoveryThis area of care focuses on self-image and how to protect yourself after chemotherapy and radiation.
  • Exercise and Fitness: The Johns Hopkins Cancer Rehabilitation Program offers outpatient physical therapy to help with fatigue, joint stiffness, weakness and more.
