Wayne Health’s Gynecologic Oncology team offers a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care, provided at the world-renowned Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, that includes support services to help nurture and sustain you and your family throughout your cancer journey.
Gynecologic cancers include any cancer that develops in a woman’s reproductive organs. Each gynecologic cancer has its own unique set of risk factors, symptoms, prevention strategies and treatment options. As with most cancers, treatment is most effective when the cancer is detected in its early stages and a team approach to treatment is taken.
Our Gynecologic Oncology Multidisciplinary Team at Karmanos Cancer Center provides each patient with an individualized treatment plan. During your initial visit, a physician will review your medical records and medical history, x-rays and pathology slides. Our multidisciplinary team meets to discuss the patient’s unique medical issues and create a customized patient treatment plan.
Our physicians and researchers at Wayne Health are also faculty at Wayne State University School of Medicine. We conduct basic research and clinical studies that can make the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you before anywhere else.
For more than a century, the Wayne State University Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology has provided excellence in women’s healthcare in the metropolitan Detroit area. The Department offers a wide scope of services that address every healthcare phase of a woman’s experience throughout her lifetime – from reproductive care through the childbearing and post-menopausal years. Our physicians and researchers are consistently rated among the best in the nation and are committed to providing the best patient care, teaching future leaders and conducting innovative research.
