Clinical expertise

Our specialists are experts in the latest technological treatment advances, including 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 care you're confident about.
