Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center experts at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., and Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, have vast expertise in managing all types of gynecologic cancers, precancerous conditions like cervical dysplasia, and advanced benign gynecologic conditions like complex fibroids.
Tailored Cancer Treatments
Our gynecologic cancer experts offer a range of treatment options, including radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery.
Using the advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the proton center, our radiation oncologists are using highly advanced, precision MR-guided brachytherapy, a technique that places radioactive “seeds” at the site of tumors, in real-time. The goal is to treat women with cervical, uterine, vaginal or recurrent ovarian cancers with highly curative treatment that can destroy the tumor while delivering very little radiation to the normal surrounding tissue, to yield fewer side effects.
Care Tailored For You
Our comprehensive and collaborative team of radiation oncologists, gynecologic oncology surgeons, medical oncologists, nurses, social workers, therapists and other providers work together to support each patient’s experience. New patients can meet all of our experts through direct, in-person consultation or by tele-visit through a smartphone or internet-connected device and have access to outstanding expert care and to clinical trials, including for women with uncommon malignancies. In addition, our specialists participate in a weekly tumor board conference. During this conference, new patient cases are discussed. This provides an opportunity for very thorough evaluation by the top gynecologic cancer experts at Sibley, Suburban and our main campus in East Baltimore. Each patient participates in forming an individualized care plan that maximizes the opportunity for a successful outcome.
Our cancer center also offers fertility preservation options for women who are starting cancer treatments. Visit the Fertility Preservation and Innovation Center website to learn more about fertility preservation options for women who are starting cancer treatment.
Whether the tumor is common or rare, our specialists provide personalized care for women by offering the most advanced technologies.
