Women from Cape Coral, FL, who require a lymph node dissection as a part of their ovarian cancer treatment can turn to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. The surgical expertise of the team at Moffitt can truly make a difference in a patient’s quality of life, and we are committed to providing the best possible treatment and care for every patient.
All of the surgeons at Moffitt are fellowship trained and highly experienced, and they exclusively perform cancer treatment procedures in their respective fields of specialty. And, as a high-volume cancer center (the third largest in the nation), Moffitt has surgeons who perform more procedures to treat reproductive malignancies, such as ovarian cancer, than the surgeons at many other cancer centers. Additionally, we offer every type of cancer surgery available, and our surgeons utilize state-of-the-art technologies, such as robotics and minimally invasive approaches, when appropriate. Moffitt can now remove tumors and treat cancer in ways that were previously impossible, and we remain on the cutting edge by continually developing new and more effective methods of cancer treatment.
At Moffitt, we take an individualized, multispecialty approach to cancer treatment. Every woman who comes to us for a lymph node dissection has access to an entire team of medical professionals – not just one surgeon – who work collaboratively on her case as a tumor board. These cancer specialists continually monitor the patient’s progress and adjust treatment as necessary. Moffitt’s tumor board includes:
- Radiation oncologists
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Experienced nurses
- Social workers
- And other supportive care providers
