For women in Orlando, Florida, who need a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – a procedure that involves removing both ovaries and both fallopian tubes – as a part of ovarian cancer treatment, the team of experts at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa is here to provide the most advanced surgical care and support. Moffitt is the third largest cancer center in the nation based on volume, and we have earned an international reputation as a leader in complex cancer surgeries. Our surgeons are experts in their respective specialties, as each surgeon focuses exclusively on a particular type of cancer. Additionally, our surgeons perform a wide range of advanced operations, including procedures that use state-of-the-art robotic technology and minimally invasive techniques. The unparalleled level of surgical expertise at Moffitt helps contribute to our highly successful surgical outcomes, as well as patient satisfaction and quality of life.
At Moffitt, we take an individualized, multispecialty approach to ovarian cancer care. Not only will our patients be treated by surgeons who specialize in completing bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy procedures for ovarian cancer patients, but also a comprehensive team of cancer specialists who will review their cases as a tumor board. Working together with the goal of examining the tumor’s grade, size and location, monitoring a treatment’s progress and tailoring cancer care to each patient’s specific needs, this tumor board may consist of:
- Radiation oncologists
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Social workers
- And other supportive care professionals
