About This Service
Gynecologic Oncology services are offered through Women’s Health, a clinical partnership between Ascension Seton and UT Health Austin.
Gynecologic Oncology services are available to provide care for any known or suspected gynecologic cancers, including suspicious pelvic masses, cervical cancers, endometrial/uterine cancer, gestational trophoblastic disease, ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal cancer, vulvar cancer, and vaginal cancer. Treatment and screening are also available for patients who are at high risk of developing cancers, such as those with BRCA mutations, HNPCC/Lynch syndrome, AIS (cervical adenocarcinoma in situ), CIN III (carcinoma in situ), or VIN III (carcinoma in situ).
The Gynecologic Oncology care team is comprised of nationally recognized and highly specialized physicians and care providers. We combine the latest research and methodologies with supportive care for the body, mind, and heart through an integrated comprehensive approach designed to help you and your loved ones maintain balance and wellness through their cancer experience.
Gynecologic oncologists are fellowship-trained gynecologists who have completed an additional 3-4 years of training to become experts in prevention, early detection, and treatment of all gynecologic cancers.
Patients are cared for by a dedicated multidisciplinary care team, meaning you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines. Our gynecologic oncologists work alongside a team of women’s health experts, including radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, oncofertility specialists, onco-psychiatrists, genetic counselors, physical therapists, dietitians, social workers, and more, to provide unparalleled care for patients every step of the way.
We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide you with world-class, personalized cancer treatment. Depending on your specific needs, your treatment may include combinations of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and/or immunotherapy or other targeted therapy.
