Gynecologic (GYN) Cancer Program

The Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute works in conjunction with your gynecologist to assess and diagnose your GYN cancer.  Once diagnosed with a GYN cancer, Gibbs is ready to navigate you through treatment and survivorship.  The GYN Cancer Program focuses on women’s reproductive organs which include:

·      Ovaries
·      Cervix
·      Uterus (endometrium)
·      Vulva
·      Vagina
·      Fallopian tubes.  
 
Our team of experts collaborates to offer you the latest treatment advances (link to GYN treatment).  Options may include:  minimally invasive surgical procedures, such as robot assisted surgery; radiation therapy; and chemotherapy.  Additionally, every patient is reviewed for possible participation in a clinical trial. For women of child bearing age fertility preservation options are available.   You may also meet with our genetic counselor to discuss your family risk of GYN cancers.  Your treatment options are discussed during the GYN Multidisciplinary Planning Conference where they are personalized for you.
