Some of the nation’s most highly respected uterine cancer experts practice at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, which is convenient to patients from the Orlando, FL, area. The experienced specialists in our Gynecologic Oncology Program utilize the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques, all of which are backed by Moffitt’s extensive research efforts. Through our robust clinical trials program, we provide our patients with access to promising new treatments as soon as those options become available. In a single location, we offer everything a woman may need to address her cancer and regain her well-being.
Surgery is often an important component of a multispecialty uterine cancer treatment plan. Moffitt’s surgeons are skilled in using the innovative da Vinci® Surgical System, which facilitates a surgical technique that provides a minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Because this technology makes it possible for a surgeon to access a uterine tumor with only a few tiny incisions and offers greater visibility, precision and control, many patients recover relatively quickly, which allows them to move on to additional treatments if needed, and get back to their daily lives as soon as possible.
As compared to other surgical techniques used for uterine cancer treatment, some potential benefits of the da Vinci® Surgical System include:
- Reduced pain
- Lower risk of infection and other surgical complications
- Less blood loss
- Minimal scarring (due to smaller incisions)
- Shorter recovery period
At every juncture of a woman’s uterine cancer journey, Moffitt’s multispecialty team — which includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gynecologists, pathologists and radiologists — collaboratively plots her next steps. Women from Orlando, Florida, can feel confident that they are in good hands with Moffitt as they receive world-class treatment relatively close to home.
