My doctors say that I'm a miracle, but I know miracles happen every day at MD Anderson.
Teams of some of the nation's top uterine cancer experts consider all the options, and then they recommend the most-advanced therapies with the least impact on your body. They have at their fingertips the latest technology and techniques, backed by one of the leading uterine cancer research programs in the United States.
Personalized Uterine Cancer Care
Your treatment team, which may include medical, surgical and radiation oncologists; gynecologists; pathologists; and diagnostic radiologists, collaborates and communicates each step of the way. A specially trained staff with experience in caring for women with uterine cancer supports the team.
Surgery often is part of the treatment for uterine cancer. At MD Anderson, our highly specialized surgeons are among the most experienced and skillful in the country. In many cases, they are able to perform minimally invasive surgeries for uterine cancer. These procedures may help lessen the time it takes you to heal and the time you need to spend in the hospital.
Specialized Care, Research
At MD Anderson, we go beyond treating disease. We are dedicated to helping women who have been treated for uterine cancer get back to a healthy life. For instance, we offer special support groups just for women with uterine cancer.
In addition, we are working toward a better understanding of uterine cancer on a molecular basis. Our Gynecologic Genetics Clinic provides genetic counseling for women at risk of inherited cancer syndromes.
MD Anderson is proud to be one of the only cancer centers in the nation to house a $10 million federally funded uterine cancer SPORE (Specialized Program of Research Excellence) program. We're leading the way in uterine cancer research, which means we offer a variety of clinical trials of new therapies.
