The experts at MD Anderson’s Laura Lee Blanton Gynecologic Oncology Center have a history of pioneering new treatments for gynecologic cancers.
Our research proved that cervical cancer can be treated more effectively with chemotherapy and radiation instead of radiation alone, changing the standard of care for cervical cancer.
Our doctors created the MD Anderson Algorithm, a scientific method of choosing the best candidates for ovarian cancer surgery that has greatly increased the rate of complete tumor removal and may affect overall survival.
We offer the most advanced treatment options for gynecologic cancers, including radical trachelectomy and other techniques that preserve child-bearing ability and sexual function.
The Gynecologic Oncology Center has sub-specialty services to meet the needs of all patients. These include:
- Genetic counseling and testing for women with a family history of gynecologic cancer
- Colposcopy evaluation of the cervix, vulva and vagina
- Diagnostic evaluations for women with suspected cases of gynecologic cancer.
- Oncofertility services to preserve the ability to have children for men and women
- Ovarian cancer screening for women at high risk
- Evaluation, counseling and management of cancer-related sexual issues
- Treatment of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections that can lead to cancer
Once we receive a cancer diagnosis, we all have to decide if this is something we're going to share with a lot of people. My cervical cancer battle was very public in my community.
