Gynecologic Oncologists

What is a Gynecologic Oncologist?

  • A gynecologic oncologist is a gynecologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs.
  • After completing a 4 year residency in obstetrics and gynecology, gynecologic oncologists must complete an additional 3 year fellowship specializing in pre-cancerous and cancerous conditions.
  • They learn the highest surgical skills levels required to properly stage and remove the majority of the tumor, know as debulking, as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy techniques.
