Moffitt Cancer Center is an outstanding option for women in Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida, who are considering omentectomy for ovarian cancer treatment. As the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida, our extensive research efforts and cutting-edge clinical trials have received national recognition, and we are able to offer a variety of innovative treatments that greatly benefit our patients with ovarian cancer. We know that facing ovarian cancer can be stressful, and our gynecological team works to ensure that our patients get the world-class care and individualized treatment they deserve.
To help determine the right course of action for each of our patients, be it an omentectomy or other treatment, our dedicated tumor board convenes each week. Members include a wide range of cancer specialists, including:
- Gynecological oncologists
- Radiation therapy oncologists
This multispecialty group carefully reviews every patient’s case and identifies the best options for each individual patient. As a result, women who travel from Ft. Myers or Naples can feel confident that the treatment they receive is based on the consensus of many different cancer specialists – not one single physician – providing peace of mind that they’re getting the best possible care available.
An omentectomy is one example of an ovarian cancer treatment that Moffitt specializes in. During this procedure, the thin tissue that covers the stomach and large intestine, which is known as the omentum, is carefully removed if cancer cells have been identified in the tissue. In addition to omentectomy procedures, we offer many other ovarian cancer surgeries and are committed to uncovering new treatment methodologies through our ongoing research and clinical trials.
With Moffitt, you have one of the nation’s leading cancer centers located just a short drive away, and we have partnerships with many local hotels to accommodate your visit to our cancer center.

No referral is necessary, and we’ll help you determine the best approach for treating your ovarian cancer.
