Cancer Care

Gynecologic Oncology

John T. Comerci, Jr., M.D., FACOG, FACS

Life changes with cancer. And women faced with this challenge need the best care possible.

 
If you believe you might have a cancer of your reproductive organs, or have been diagnosed with gynecologic cancer, medical experts recommend you be under the care of a Gynecologic Oncologist.
 
The five main types of cancer that affect a woman’s reproductive organs are: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. Treatment for gynecologic cancers is most effective when detected early.
 
A Gynecologic Oncologist is an obstetrician/gynecologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs. Specifically, this medical specialty provides comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care to treat cancer of the ovary, endometrium, uterus, cervix, vagina, vulva and trophoblastic disease.
 
A Gynecologic Oncologist is a skilled surgeon who is trained in all of the effective forms of treatment of gynecologic cancers (radiation therapy, chemotherapy and experimental) as well as the biology and pathology of gynecologic cancer.
 
To schedule an appointment with a Gynecologic Oncologist please call 412.942.5700.
