MultiCare is proud to offer expertise in gynecologic oncology. We treat cancers that affect a woman’s reproductive system, such as ovarian, endometrial and cervical cancers.
A gynecologic oncologist is a doctor with specialized training in the prevention, diagnosis and treating cancers unique to women's reproductive organs.
After completing medical school, these doctors complete training in obstetrics and gynecology, learning all aspects of women's health. They then go on to complete an additional three to four years focused on cancer detection, honing innovative surgical techniques and developing personalized therapy for patients using treatments such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy and radiation. Gynecologic oncologists also treat women with complex noncancerous (benign) gynecologic problems, including fibroids and endometriosis.
Our gynecologic oncologists are experienced and they are committed to providing you with comprehensive, compassionate care.
