Our specialists also take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, which includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Our physicians have access to a range of innovative technologies to diagnose and treat your specific cancer. We combine these technology with weekly tumor boards, where multidisciplinary experts review every new patient and work together to create a personalized treatment plan that helps address your individual needs. Through our alliance with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, your care team also meets quarterly with other gynecologic oncology experts to discuss standards of care and the latest developments in gynecologic cancer treatment.
