Gynecologic Cancers Treatment Options

Here at City of Hope, our team of experts uses leading-edge methods to treat gynecologic cancers.

Highlights Of Our CERVICAL CANCER 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
  • 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
  • Individually customized chemotherapy regimens, including novel drugs and drug combinations in our clinical trials program

Highlights Of Our OVARIAN CANCER Treatment Program Include:

Cytoreductive (debulking) surgery with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), which extensively removes cancerous tissue followed by applying cancer-fighting drugs directly into the abdominal and pelvic area, increasing its effectiveness in killing any remaining cancer cells
  • Pelvic floor reconstruction procedures that can restore continence and reduce discomfort
  • Image-guided radiation delivery systems that can accurately target radiation to tumor sites while minimizing exposure in normal, healthy tissues
  • Fertility-preserving options for patients who wish to have children after cancer treatment
  • Innovative ovarian cancer clinical trials with treatments that may be more effective and less toxic, including cancer-fighting viruses, immunity-boosting vaccine therapies and drugs that can overcome the cancer’s defense mechanisms

Highlights Of Our ENDOMETRIAL/UTERINE CANCER 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.
