Treatments and Support Services

At the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service we are dedicated to supporting our patients through every aspect of care. Each patient’s care is led by one of our specialized gynecologic oncologists, backed by a medical team equipped to meet the full scope of each individuals treatment needs.

Our unique approach allows patients to keep the same specialist through: medical oncology, treatment of rare tumors, treatment for gestational trophoblastic disease, guidance with clinical trials and genetic counseling, management of care — including multidisciplinary care, supportive care, and chemotherapy — and more. Our gynecologic oncologists are also 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. Studies have shown that people treated early by a gynecologic oncologist tend to have better prognoses and better survival rates than those not treated by a gynecologic oncologist.

Your treatment may include:

All patients receive comprehensive support and counseling to help them manage the emotional and lifestyle changes that accompany cancer.

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. We strive to see patients within just a few days of referral, as we understand the stress of receiving a new cancer diagnosis.
