Our multidisciplinary staff pursues an integrated approach to treating endometrial cancer by combining the latest research findings with outstanding patient care. This includes using advanced technologies and specialized techniques such as:

  • Innovative, minimally invasive surgical approaches, reducing pain, blood loss and recovery time
  • Cytoreductive (debulking) surgery procedures that can improve outcomes
  • Highly precise radiation delivery, increasing its effectiveness against cancer while reducing exposure to normal tissues
  • Comprehensive diagnostic tools
  • Individually customized chemotherapy regimens, including intraperitoneal (IP) and heated intraperitoneal (HIPEC) chemotherapy
  • Fertility-preserving treatment options

City of Hope is a nationally recognized leader in the research and treatment of gynecological cancers. We are one of the few facilities designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, and for the 12th year, U.S. News & World Report has named City of Hope one of the top cancer hospitals in America. U.S. News also named City of Hope’s gynecological program as one of the top in the nation.

NEWS & BREAKTHROUGHS

Every patient is different, with different needs. At City of Hope, we treat you as a valued individual. Our entire ovarian cancer team works together to bring you advanced surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radiation and supportive care options that will deliver the best outcome for you. You can also enroll in clinical trials for promising treatments that are not offered elsewhere.

Highlights of our treatment program include:

  • Minimally invasive and robotic surgery, which uses smaller incisions than a traditional open procedure, resulting in less blood loss, reduced pain, shorter recovery time and quicker return to normal activities
  • Cytoreductive (debulking) surgery, which can improve outcomes and increase likelihood of a cure
  • Advanced radiation therapy delivery that is more focused on cancerous cells with less exposure on surrounding normal tissues
  • Fertility-preserving therapy options for young women who want to preserve their fertility after cancer treatment
  • Intraperitoneal (IP) and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), which can improve outcomes for women with advanced cancers.

Your care continues long after treatment is completed, and we are committed to helping you and your loved ones manage your recovery. This includes our survivorship program, which has resources to improve quality of life for our gynecologic cancer survivors.
