Each year, more than 71,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with a cancer of the reproductive system. More than 26,000 women die of their disease, often because it wasn’t detected early enough.

WVU Medicine’s Gynecologic Oncology specialists are devoted to caring for women with gynecologic cancers and pre-cancerous conditions.

We take a holistic, proactive approach to diagnosing and treating women for all types of gynecologic diseases, including cancers of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, vulva and vagina. We work as a team with medical oncologists, radiation specialists and other physicians to ensure that you receive the most exacting diagnosis and the most advanced care.

Advanced Treatments

Our gynecologic cancer team embraces the latest available surgical technologies and therapies for diagnosing and treating women with all types of gynecological cancer including advanced robot-assisted surgery, laparoscopy and single-incision laparoscopic surgery for cancers of the uterus, cervix and ovary. We also treat women without cancer who are in need of complex surgical care.

We provide a full range of services for our patients – from the most complex surgical interventions to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. We also participate in clinical trials of the Gynecologic Oncology Group.

Our Expertise

WVU Medicine surgeons provide expert treatment for advanced-stage and recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube and peritoneal cancers, including extensive cytoreduction, or debulking surgery.

Our specialists are experts in the use of chemotherapy, biological therapies and radiation therapy to treat women with all types of gynecologic cancers and cancer-related issues, including:

  • Cervical Cancer
  • Uterine Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Vaginal Cancer
  • Vulvar Cancer

Personalized Care

We believe in tailoring treatment plans to each patient to maximize survival and to provide the highest quality of life during and after treatment.

When you come to WVU Medicine for treatment, you will be seen at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, where you will receive a thorough evaluation by a gynecologic oncologist. You will also meet the gynecologic oncology cancer team including an oncology nurse and a gynecologic oncology social worker.

In addition to discussing your treatment, you will have the chance to talk about the emotional, spiritual, and financial aspects of your care. We want you and every patient we serve to feel reassured that appropriate and timely therapy will be provided.
