The Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service is a world leader in surgery and oncology care for women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer. Our approach and care philosophy is to treat the whole patient, not just her cancer, and to focus on innovative treatments and surgical approaches, like robotic surgery, single-site laparoscopy, sentinel lymph node procedures and radical debulking surgery. In addition, we possess clinical expertise in preventive oncology, helping women who are at high risk for ovarian, uterine and other gynecologic cancers, and in the surgical management of complex benign gynecologic conditions, including fibroids, ovarian masses and cysts.

At the Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, this approach includes:

  • Prioritizing You and Your Care: At Johns Hopkins, we strive to see patients with a new cancer diagnosis within three to seven business days of referral. Additionally, if surgery or treatment is required, our appointment-to-surgery interval is approximately one to two weeks.

  • Patient Satisfaction and Cancer Survival Rates Above the National Average: Our national patient satisfaction ratings reflect our position as one of the top-performing centers at Johns Hopkins. Additionally, studies show that women with gynecologic cancer who are treated by a gynecologic oncologist experience better survival than those not treated by a cancer specialist. With cancer survival outcomes above the national average, Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service specialists offer patients the opportunity to have an excellent quality of life and better survival outcomes.
