Endometrial cancer occurs in the lining of the uterus, or endometrium, when excess cells divide rapidly and accumulate to form a tumor. Individuals from St. Petersburg, Florida, who have been diagnosed with endometrial cancer can turn to the gynecological clinic at Moffitt Cancer Center in nearby Tampa to receive all of the treatment and supportive care services they need.
Many patients in need of cancer treatment choose Moffitt because of our:
- Multispecialty team – The cancer experts within our gynecological clinic are committed to treating endometrial cancer. Our multispecialty team includes radiologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, nurse practitioners and other medical professionals who collaborate in regular tumor board meetings to review each patient’s case. Our team’s experience and specialty contributes to high success rates and an improved quality of life for our patients.
- Individualized treatment plans – By giving each patient’s case individual attention, we are able to develop a treatment plan tailored to her unique needs. Treatment may involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy or a combination of different approaches. Our team uses advanced techniques, such as robotic surgery, to provide the best possible level of care.
- Other related services – Moffitt patients have access to a range of other related services and can meet with a fertility preservation specialist for long-term planning, a plastic surgeon for reconstructive surgery or a number of supportive care specialists, such as social workers, to meet their needs while undergoing treatment. Moffitt provides all of these services under one roof, so patients traveling from St. Petersburg, FL, need only visit one location to receive all of the treatment and care they need.
