Studies prove that when gynecologic cancer surgery is performed by a gynecologic oncology specialist, women experience higher survival rates. The DeCesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center has assembled a leading gynecologic oncology team to provide women with cancerous and pre-cancerous genital tract malignancies with the region's most specialized, experienced surgical care - and, ultimately, better outcomes.
Our board-certified gynecologic oncology surgeons offer some of the most advanced treatment protocols available in the Washington DC/Baltimore metro area for:
Surgery may include aggressive tumor removal and utilize laparoscopic and robotic surgical approaches. We also offer a comprehensive program in the evaluation of pre-cancerous lesions of the vulva, vagina, cervix and pelvic masses using advanced diagnostic and evaluative procedures.
Our gynecologic oncology surgeons routinely perform cancer treatment surgery using the daVinci® Surgical System, a minimally invasive robotic approach to gynecologic cancer. They are also experts at Heated Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC), a form of cancer treatment for pelvic cancer that has spread into the abdomen, and High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy, an advanced treatment option for delivering radiation closest to the tumor.
Our gynecologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons and pathologists collaborate as a team to develop and implement the best, most personalized treatment plan for each patient. We also offer a robust roster of supportive care programs - including nurse navigators, social workers, support groups and genetic counseling - to ensure patients receive the emotional, mental and spiritual support they need at every step of their journey.
We understand that the needs of our gynecologic oncology surgery patients are highly specialized. That's why we created the dedicated Women's Surgical Unit, located in the Women's and Children's Pavilion at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Staffed entirely by experts in women-centric care, our Women's Surgical Unit offers everything our patients need to heal peacefully and comfortably.
