Gynecologic Oncology

Gynecologic surgeons at Fox Chase Cancer Center are national leaders in performing complex procedures for patients with cervical, ovarian, uterine, fallopian, vaginal and vulvar cancers. Our surgeons work with you to choose an approach that offers the best chance at controlling your cancer, preserving fertility and function, and reducing the risk of recurrence. Our gynecologic oncology surgeons work with a full team, taking a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer, including diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.

  • Fox Chase gynecologic surgeons operate using robotic, laparoscopic and traditional abdominal incision approaches. Minimally-invasive robotic surgery is commonly offered for cancers requiring the removal of the uterus (partial hysterectomy), uterus and cervix (total hysterectomy), fallopian tubes and/or ovaries. The robot also can be used to help determine the stage of the cancer.

    The Women's Menopausal and Sexual Health Program provides clinical support for cancer survivors facing issues such as menopausal changes, sexuality & intimacy and fertility concerns.
