Gynecological cancer—ovarian, endometrial (uterine), cervical, vaginal, fallopian tube and vulvar—may make you feel particularly vulnerable. Wherever your gynecological cancer appears, Sutter care centers have comprehensive and thoughtful care, from diagnosis to survivorship, that’s unique to you and your needs. At Sutter Medical Foundation, we’re fortunate to have a team of gynecologic oncology specialists—doctors who spend 100 percent of their time on cancers of the reproductive system.
Our diagnostic tools, including pelvic screening and cone or endometrial biopsies, help gather crucial information quickly and effectively. Should you require surgery, you and your physician will discuss the best choice for your needs. We specialize in advanced and minimally invasive surgical options, such as laser surgery, cryosurgery and robotic-assisted surgery, to help you recover faster and regain your active life. If warranted and depending on your case, hysterectomy and single or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (surgery to remove one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes) can be performed laparoscopically.
We’re also committed to genetic research and clinical trials to help you in your fight against cancer, providing you access to new therapies and drugs. And we’re at the forefront of precision medicine treatments to target your gynecological cancer most successfully. Across the network, many of our hospitals have received high-performing rankings in gynecology and gynecology specialty care from the U.S. News & World Report.
Because we understand that total wellness involves body, mind and spirit—and recognizing the power of shared experience—we offer many support services and classes.
