This is a group of cancers that affect the female reproductive system.
There are several types of gynecologic cancers including cervical cancer, ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. However, ovarian cancer accounts for more gynecologic cancer deaths than all other gynecologic cancers combined.
Gynecologic oncologists Dr. Nicholas Taylor and Dr. Israel Zighelboim practice the surgical and medical management of gynecologic cancers through the Gynecologic Oncology program at St. Luke’s Cancer Center; they are board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Gynecologic Oncology. Patients have access to innovative cancer treatments including radiation therapy, chemotherapies, hormonal therapies and a variety of investigational protocols. Services are coordinated before, during and after treatment and to ensure continuum of care for all patients.
