In our ongoing quest to discover new insights, techniques and treatments in gynecology, we at The Johns Hopkins Hospital are driven by the needs of our patients—women of all ages who turn to us for our expertise. From our most basic molecular and genetic studies to our translational research and clinical trials, we have one goal: to transform patient care.
The articles in this issue of Innovations in Gynecology highlight just a few of the ways that we continue to push the boundaries of gynecologic care: sentinel lymph node mapping for gynecologic cancers using imaging with advanced robotic surgery, developing a specialized clinic for high-risk pregnant obese women, and conducting groundbreaking research to confirm that ovarian cancer develops in the fallopian tube—not in the ovary.
And now, patients have the added advantage of receiving care in the comfort of our new, spacious and modern facility in the new clinical building.
We hope you enjoy this brief snapshot of our department’s innovations. Please call on us to learn how we can contribute to your practice.
