Because every case of gynecological cancer is different, it’s important that we tailor our treatment exactly to your condition, making sure you understood everything about what to expect and what options are available to you.
We are experts in the most advanced gynecological treatments available, and have had great success in getting our patients cured through surgery, radiation oncology, and chemotherapy and hormonal treatments.
Your Nurse Navigator is your guide throughout your treatment and recovery.
Understanding Your Treatment Options
Once you are diagnosed with gynecological cancer, you are assigned a Nurse Navigator whose job is to make sure you are involved and understand the plan for your treatment and recovery.
Your managing physician has access to a multi-disciplinary cancer case conference (tumor board) where a team of medical experts review complex cases and make treatment recommendations. The expert panel consists of a gynecologic oncologist, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, radiologist, and pathologist.
Through partnerships with the American Institute for Cancer Research and the Yale Cancer Center, John Muir Health participates in a number of clinical trials for new treatments of gynecological cancers. Your doctor will provide guidance on whether this is appropriate for your care.
