Gynecologic Oncology: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Top specialists: Our doctors are recognized leaders in the field of gynecologic oncology. They’ve received advanced training in identifying and treating gynecological cancers and pre-cancerous conditions.
  • A team approach: Treating cancer can be complicated. Our doctors, nurse practitioners and nurses work together with many experts who care for people with cancer. Those specialists include those in radiation oncology, immunotherapy, cancer genetics, psychologic oncology, pain and symptom management, palliative care, and gynecologic pathology. Our combined expertise means you get the best possible care.
  • Personalized care: When you’ve been diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, you might feel intimidated. Together, we’ll come up with a treatment plan customized to you and based on your diagnosis, treatment options and goals. Some of the nation’s leading cancer experts will work together to create this personalized plan. Our team of doctors will discuss your case during regularly scheduled cancer care meetings.
  • Clinical trials: As an academic medical center, we are able to offer our patients access to clinical trials that are studying new treatments for gynecologic cancers. This means you may have access to new treatments that are not yet widely available elsewhere.
  • A responsive team: A dedicated gynecological oncology nurse or attending physician is available 24/7 to speak with you via phone, at 1-877-936-8422. You can also send messages to your care team at any time through our secure online portal, My Health at Vanderbilt.
