Women from the Gulf Coast region of Florida who require ovarian cancer treatment are encouraged to turn to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa for the latest advances in gynecologic oncology and comprehensive supportive care. Our ovarian cancer program features a multispecialty team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, reproductive endocrinologists, radiologists and other experts who focus exclusively on malignancies of the female reproductive system.
A woman’s ideal course of ovarian cancer treatment will depend on several factors, such as what cells are affected (epithelial, germ or stromal), the stage of the malignancy and her overall health. Moffitt’s tumor board collaboratively develops individualized treatment plans for our patients to ensure the best possible outcomes and an improved quality of life. While ovarian cancer treatment plans at Moffitt vary from patient to patient, they may include:
- Minimally invasive, robotic-assisted procedures to remove malignant growths on one or both ovaries
- Novel combinations of chemotherapy to destroy cancer cells throughout the body
- Bone marrow stem cell transplants to promote healing, in more advanced cases
Moffitt is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is a testament to our commitment to discovering breakthroughs in ovarian cancer treatment. Our team spearheads ambitious research initiatives and a robust clinical trial program, where eligible patients are able to receive the latest advances in treatment before they are made widely available.
Moffitt’s ovarian cancer services also extend to cancer prevention, reproductive health and overall wellness. Our team includes experts who help manage the gynecological health of women with inherited gene abnormalities that increase their risk of ovarian cancer, as well as fertility preservation specialists and supportive care professionals such as yoga instructors, massage therapists and counselors.
To help simplify the process of traveling to Moffitt for ovarian cancer treatment, we have partnered with reputable hotels near our center to provide discounted rates to patients and their families from Gulf Coast, FL, and throughout the country.
