Your quality of life is paramount, which is why our expert physicians at the Gynecologic Oncology Center prescribe therapies with “life after cancer” in mind. For example, women in their reproductive years that are diagnosed with cervical, ovarian and endometrial cancers are treated with fertility-sparing techniques whenever possible.
Long Island Jewish Medical Center, North Shore University Hospital and Huntington Hospital have been designated as Academic Centers of Excellence for minimally invasive surgery in gynecologic oncology and gynecology by the American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery (AIMIS).
You will benefit from the Gynecologic Oncology Center’s coordinated teams of specialists who are nationally recognized leaders in their field. This multidisciplinary approach encompasses the full scope of diagnostic, therapeutic and treatment options, and includes surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, oncology nursing, social services, cancer genetic counseling and nutrition counseling. The result of this collaboration translates into a personalized treatment plan based on your uniquely individual treatment and emotional needs.
The team includes experts in the latest technological treatment advances that include minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotically assisted surgery, laser therapy, hormonal and investigational chemotherapy, and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).
Before practicing at the Gynecologic Oncology Center at Northwell, our physicians must graduate from medical school, complete a four-year residency in obstetrics and gynecology and participate in a three to four year fellowship program in gynecologic oncology.
During their training, our specialists conduct unique research projects in a focused field and are trained in open, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery.
Even after our specialists graduate from these rigorous programs, their education never stops. Northwell physicians are committed to staying up-to-date on research, techniques and medical breakthroughs so you can receive the most cutting-edge care possible.
