Gynecological Cancer

At Allegheny Health System, we're at the forefront of important developments in advanced gynecological cancer care. Our programs offer in-depth consultation, medical therapy, inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation oncology, cancer prevention and education, social service, and hospice and palliative care for adolescents and adults. Most diagnostic work, including biopsies, can be performed on an outpatient basis.

We offer advanced diagnostic testing and treatments for patients with the following cancers:

  • Cervical
  • Endometrial
  • Fallopian tube
  • Ovarian
  • Uterine
  • Vaginal
  • Vulvar

A variety of minimally invasive, laser, reconstructive and complex surgical procedures have proven to be essential in the management of gynecologic malignancies, especially cervical and ovarian cancer.

Many of these unique procedures were designed and developed by our nationally and internationally recognized board-certified gynecologic oncologists. With the acquisition of the da Vinci® robotic surgery system, our patients are able to benefit from minimally invasive surgical options for both benign and malignant gynecologic conditions.

We also offer important educational, prevention and screening programs for cervical cancer using serology testing for human papillomavirus (HPV), as well as identification and management of ovarian and familial cancer.

Our own West Penn Hospital offers women experimental drug therapies and the opportunity to participate in a variety of cutting-edge clinical trials through the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) – a service of the National Cancer Institute.

Above all, our goal is to provide women with "total care." From diagnosis, to treatment therapies, to follow-up care, and even end-of-life care, our physicians are dedicated to offering patients the utmost in compassionate care.

Specialty areas and services include:

  • Abdominal hysterectomy
  • Bladder-suspension surgery
  • D&C hysteroscopy
  • Radical vulvectomy
  • Robotic surgery
  • Retroperitoneal radical hysterectomy
  • Salpingo-oophorectomy
