Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center is home to four board-certified gynecologic oncologists and more gynecologic oncology clinical trials than anywhere else in the state. Your gynecologic oncologist can manage your care from diagnosis to completion of treatment and will meet weekly with a multidisciplinary team of medical specialists to discuss all aspects of your case.
Methodist’s gynecologic oncologists are board-certified OB/GYNs with additional specialized training to treat the following:
- Cervical cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Gestational trophoblastic disease
- Ovarian cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Vaginal cancer
- Vulvar cancer
Your journey toward recovery may include surgery, chemotherapy – which is provided in the Infusion Center at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center – radiation therapy or a combination of these options. To help ensure the best possible outcomes, Methodist also offers state-of-the-art technology, including:
- Da Vinci® computer-assisted surgical system
This minimally invasive system provides our surgeons with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
- Sentinel lymph node mapping and biopsy
This technology entails the use of dye and a radioactive solution to locate the sentinel lymph nodes, or the first nodes to which a cancer drains. Sentinel node biopsy is a procedure that allows our surgeons to identify whether cancer has spread to the lymphatic system.
- SPY Portable Handheld Imager (SPY-PHI)
This fluorescence imaging technology is typically used in the treatment of cervical, endometrial and vulvar cancers, allowing our surgeons to assess open sentinel lymph nodes.
