Our gynecologic clinic boasts a multispecialty team that includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, reproductive endocrinologists and other experts who focus solely on cancers that develop in the female reproductive system.

Uterine cancer treatment can take several forms depending on the cellular makeup and extent of the malignancy, along with the patient’s overall health and preferences. That’s why Moffitt’s tumor board develops tailored treatment plans to address the unique needs of each woman. Many uterine cancer treatment plans include an individualized combination of:
- Robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgeries to address cancerous growths, remove the uterus or carry out other aspects of treatment
- Hormone therapy to reduce the production of cancer-stimulating hormones
- Radiation therapy to shrink tumors with high-energy X-rays
- Chemotherapy to eliminate cancer cells that have reached other areas of the body
Moffitt also leads groundbreaking research initiatives and a robust clinical trial program in an ongoing effort to find a cure once and for all. Women who are eligible to participate in a clinical trial have access to the latest advances in treatment before they are made widely available.
