For women in the Ft. Myers or Naples, Florida, area who are considering a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, Moffitt Cancer Center is an excellent option. Located a short drive away in Tampa, our National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center has earned a sterling reputation, due in part to the highly skilled and experienced team in our gynecological clinic. Whether you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and are considering a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy as a treatment option, or you have been identified as having a high risk of developing ovarian cancer and are interested in exploring preventive measures, Moffitt can help.
To ensure that every patient under our care receives the best possible treatment, our multispecialty tumor board meets weekly to discuss each patient’s case. This group of gynecological oncologists, surgeons, pathologists and other ovarian cancer experts collaboratively determines the best course of treatment depending on the patient’s specific circumstances, and then reviews the patient’s progress on an ongoing basis.
A bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy involves the surgical removal of both ovaries and both fallopian tubes. This approach may be appropriate for Ft. Myers and Naples area women who:
- Have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer
- Have a genetic predisposition for ovarian cancer
- Have had a hysterectomy for benign disease and wish to remove their ovaries and fallopian tubes to eliminate the need for future procedures
When you visit Moffitt Cancer Center, you’ll have access to the very latest in ovarian cancer care. No referrals are required, and we can help accommodate patients who are traveling from Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida, through our partnerships with many local hotels. In addition to bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, we offer many other innovative ovarian cancer treatments as well as numerous ongoing clinical trials, which help us uncover new treatment methodologies and better inform our understanding of this cancer.
