Conditions We Treat

Gynecologic Oncology

The UC Health gynecologic radiation oncology team offers comprehensive care for patients with proven or suspected malignancies, including endometrial, cervical, vulvar, vaginal or ovarian cancers.

Radiation therapy may be administered preoperatively, postoperatively or without surgery. Radiation therapy can also be used as primary treatment modality or in conjunction with surgery and chemotherapy.

Methods of radiation treatment include external beam radiotherapy alone, paired with brachytherapy (radioactive implants) or combined with chemotherapy, surgery or both. Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), tomotherapy or 3-D conformal therapy may be used in selected cases.

We collaborate with a team of double board-certified gynecologic oncologists who provide the discovery-driven cancer treatments—both medical and surgical—and advanced pelvic surgery to give patients the best outcomes possible. 

We also hold a monthly multidisciplinary conference where our care team presents and discusses patients with newly diagnosed, suspected or recurrent cancers to assure accurate diagnosis, staging and the best possible treatment suggestions.

In addition, we collaborate extensively with other UC experts to conduct research initiatives in an attempt to discover new approaches for gynecologic oncology patients.
