If you've been diagnosed with gynecologic cancer, you may be concerned about your future, how you will feel during treatment, your fertility, and your sexuality. At NewYork-Presbyterian, we provide seamless, state-of-the-art care for women with gynecologic cancers — including those of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, vagina, and vulva — in a holistic and compassionate environment.
Our teams provide highly specialized care for major gynecologic tumors as well as expertise in rare gynecologic cancers, including carcinosarcomas and leiomyosarcomas. We have a history of discovery and leadership in gynecologic cancer prevention and care.
World-Recognized Leaders in Cancer Care
NewYork-Presbyterian is home to two of the nation's leading cancer centers: the National Cancer Institute-designated Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center of New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center (one of only four comprehensive cancer centers in New York State) and the Weill Cornell Medicine Meyer Cancer Center in Partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian.
A Team of Gynecologic Oncologists & Specialists
We'll put together a team of gynecologic oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, genetic specialists, oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, psychosocial support specialists, and other experts to care for you. They are accomplished, caring specialists with a longstanding commitment to women's health. Our teams also work with colleagues in other specialties, including breast oncologists, oncologic surgeons and gastroenterologists, to evaluate women with genetic mutations that raise the risk of other cancers as well.
From screening to diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care, we provide the full range of services for gynecologic cancers. Some women with gynecologic cancers are at increased risk for breast cancer. You'll have facilitated access to our renowned breast centers, which offer coordinated care for women with or at risk for breast cancer.
Support for You & Your Family
We understand that a gynecologic cancer diagnosis can be challenging for you and your loved ones. That's why we offer a full range of psychosocial and other support services for women with gynecologic cancers and their families. Through Woman to Woman, patients newly diagnosed with gynecologic cancer may be paired with a survivor of the same or similar cancer, which provides one-on-one emotional support and guidance about treatment and what to expect in the years ahead.
A Commitment to Fertility Preservation
If you wish to become pregnant after your treatment is over, we try to use therapies that spare your fertility whenever possible. We can collaborate with infertility specialists to review your fertility preservation options. Embryo freezing, egg freezing, and in vitro fertilization afterward are sometimes available for patients with cancer looking to preserve fertility.
