The Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers the full range of services for the care of women with gynecologic malignancy (or cancers), including radical pelvic surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. We help women with ovarian, endometrial, cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancer, as well as those with pre-invasive conditions. Our services include comprehensive evaluation and complete oncological treatment.
Reproductive endocrinology and fertility
We provide a range of services that span a woman's life from puberty to menopause. Disorders for consultation include abnormal puberty, congenital mÃ¼llerian abnormalities, endometriosis, pelvic pain, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, myomatous uterus and premenstrual symptoms. Treatment of infertility includes the management of ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination, sonohysterograms and in vitro fertilization.
Female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery
We offer comprehensive treatment of pelvic floor disordersâ€”from nonsurgical to state-of-the-art, minimally invasive proceduresâ€”in patients ranging from young, active women to the elderly. We also perform reconstructive surgery and treat female urinary symptoms and incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence and birth injury.
Evaluation and management of cervical abnormalities
We offer Pap tests and colposcopy for the evaluation and management of cervical abnormalities, as they may indicate or develop into cancer and need to be treated appropriately. We often diagnose dysplasia (a precancerous condition), cervical cancer, genital warts, cervicitis and benign growths such as polyps.
The hospital's level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) helps with the birth and care of as many as 500 babies annually. The NICU is important for children born under high-risk conditions, those born following fertility treatments, and babies born to older mothers. Our NICU is well equipped to handle even the most difficult cases and provides services to infants up to 30 days old. Our perinatal mortality rate is far below the national average. As a result, we won the Premier Award for Quality for Maternal and Neonatal Care.
One in every five pregnancies is high risk, so our maternal-fetal medicine department strongly emphasizes comprehensive prenatal care. Birth defects can usually be identified before birth, which can help doctors plan prompt and optimal treatment after the child is born.
Weâ€™veâ€¯earned three-year accreditation from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine for excellence in diagnostic ultrasound. This accreditation measures standards in personnel, physical facilities, policies and procedures, and quality.
