A gynecological cancer diagnosis can be life-altering. At City of Hope, our dedicated team of experts take an integrated, patient-centered approach to diagnose and treat ovarian, cervical, endometrial/uterine, vaginal, vulvar and fallopian tube cancers.

By working collaboratively, our clinicians and researchers transform innovative scientific discoveries into promising new treatments that are more effective against the cancer with less side effects for the patient.

Highlights of our gynecologic oncology program include:

  • Advanced imaging technologies that can accurately pinpoint a tumor’s size, shape and location, enhancing our doctors’ detection and treatment planning capabilities.
  • Minimally-invasive and robotically-assisted surgical techniques that can offer optimal outcomes with less pain, reduced scarring and faster healing time.
  • Cytoreductive (tumor debulking) procedures that can enhance radiation and chemotherapy responses and improve outcomes for both early- and advance-stage cancer patients.
  • Targeted radiation regimens that is sculpted to the size and shape of the tumor, focusing its impact on cancer cells while minimizing exposure to nearby normal tissues.
  • Our specialization in heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), which applies cancer drugs directly in the abdominal cavity, instead of orally or through the bloodstream. This can increase the drugs’ effectiveness and improve outcomes.
  • A drug development pipeline that quickly identifies new cancer drugs and turns them into promising therapies for clinical trials.
  • Fertility-preserving options for younger patients who want to have children after cancer treatment.
  • All gynecologic cancer patients can participate in our survivorship program after their treatment completes. Our doctors and researchers are working to develop resources to help improve the quality of life for survivors, and all patients are able to participate in ongoing long-term research related to their life after cancer.

Additionally, City of Hope patients have access to our extensive team of supportive care experts, who will help you and your caregivers achieve and maintain a better quality of life during and after your cancer treatment.
