By employing the latest diagnosis and treatment options for gynecological cancers, we ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of cancer care. We offer treatments for such conditions as precancerous lesions of the vulva, vagina, cervix, and perianal area; cancers of the cervix, uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes; and gestational trophoblastic disease.
We utilize diagnostic and treatment techniques including:
Our physicians specialize in minimally invasive surgery techniques that allow for a decrease in post-operative pain and a shorter recovery time – a type of surgery known as laparoscopic surgery.
- Hormone therapy
- Radiation therapy
Our hospital is one of the few institutions in the U.S. that offers intra-operative radiation therapy. This procedure delivers a single high dose of radiation during surgery to an area from which a tumor has just been removed.
Our gynecologic oncologists collaborate with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists as well as with the gynecologic oncology divisions at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center and Long Island College Hospital.
Each member of this health care team is dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for our patients with gynecologic cancers. For this reason, we offer psychological and social services, pain control experts, and family support.
