Uterine Cancer Treatment – The Latest Options Are Conveniently Available to Women From the Orlando, FL, Area
Moffitt Cancer Center welcomes women from the Orlando, FL, area who are seeking uterine cancer treatment. At our highly respected gynecologic clinic in Tampa, a multispecialty team of gynecologic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and other medical professionals works closely with each patient to help her understand her options so that she can make fully informed healthcare decisions.
Many women from the Orlando, Florida, area turn to Moffitt for uterine cancer treatment, and this is for good reason. As a regional and national leader in cancer treatment, Moffitt has a vast depth of experience in treating all types of uterine cancer. Our goal is to provide each patient with effective treatment using the least invasive methods possible, using advanced surgical techniques and novel combination therapies to provide the best possible outcome and quality of life.
When developing a uterine cancer treatment plan, the team at Moffitt will take into account multiple factors, including the stage, type and grade of the tumor, and whether or not the cancer has invaded the muscle wall of the uterus. We also carefully consider the patient’s age, health history and personal preferences. A patient’s individualized treatment plan may include one or more of the following options:
- Surgery – Our fellowship-trained gynecologic surgeons are skilled and experienced in performing both traditional surgery and minimally invasive procedures, such as laparoscopic surgery, fertility-sparing surgery and robotic surgery using the innovative da Vinci® Surgical System.
- Systemic therapy – Systemic therapies such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy may be given before or after surgery to patients with muscle invasive, locally advanced or metastatic uterine cancer.
- Radiation therapy – Our radiation oncologists specialize in treating uterine cancer using the latest radiation delivery techniques. Radiation therapy uses high-energy beams to destroy cancerous cells and may be used in combination with chemotherapy or surgery for treating invasive cancer.
The researchers and clinicians at Moffitt are actively involved in developing new approaches to uterine cancer treatment. Through our robust portfolio of clinical trials, we are able to offer our patients early access to promising new options that may not be available elsewhere. To help our out-of-town patients take advantage of all of this and more, we can suggest several local hotels that provide comfortable accommodations at discounted rates.
