obgyn oncologistsGynecologic oncology diagnoses and treats the five main cancers that originate in women’s reproductive organs—ovarian, cervical, uterine, vaginal and vulvar. Each year, almost 82,000 American women are diagnosed with one of these conditions and more than 28,000 will lose their lives.

Fortunately, many of these cancers are highly treatable and even curable with the comprehensive, multidisciplinary preventive and treatment approach employed by Westchester Medical Center’s Division of Gynecologic Oncology and Center for Robotic Gynecologic Surgery. Our services include radiation therapy and chemotherapy, counseling, prevention and treatment for women at risk of developing gynecologic precancerous and cancerous conditions, state-of-the-art surgical care including da Vinci robotic surgery, and a research program.

We also take pride in our programs of support for patients and their families.

The Most Current and Comprehensive Care Available

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers patients outstanding personalized care in beautiful private rooms. In addition, our new state-of-the-art outpatient center offers easy access to ongoing aftercare and outpatient services.

Our division devotes its clinical time exclusively to the medical center’s patients and collaborates with other nationwide cancer researchers on clinical trials funded by the National Cancer Institute to better delineate treatment protocols for all types of gynecologic cancers. Trials are conducted through the Gynecologic Oncology Group, an arm of the National Cancer Institute.

At Westchester Medical Center, we treat ovarian, Fallopian tube and primary peritoneal cancers, endometrial/uterine cancers, gynecologic soft tissue tumors (including sarcomas, cervical cancer, vaginal and vulvar cancers), and gestational trophoblastic disease (molar pregnancy).
