World-class ovarian cancer treatment is available to women from West Palm Beach, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in nearby Tampa. Moffitt’s gynecological clinic features a multispecialty team of surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, reproductive endocrinologists, pathologists and other experts who focus exclusively on malignancies of the female reproductive system. This unique level of specialized expertise translates directly into better outcomes and improved quality of life for our patients, who receive attentive service and individualized care from the moment they enter our doors.
Ovarian cancer can originate in the cells that envelop the ovaries (epithelial cells), the cells that produce female hormones (stromal cells) or the cells inside the ovaries that generate eggs (germ cells). Moffitt’s tumor board collaboratively develops each patient’s ovarian cancer treatment plan based on what type of cells are affected, along with several other key factors, such as the extent of the disease and the patient’s overall health. Treatment plans may include a combination of:
- Minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery to remove cancerous growths, one or both ovaries, affected lymph nodes or surrounding tissues or organs
- Chemotherapy to destroy cancer cells that have spread to other areas of the body
- Bone marrow stem cell transplants to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, in more advanced cases
Moffitt also leads a trailblazing clinical trial program and ambitious research initiatives to improve treatment for ovarian cancer and other gynecologic malignancies. Thanks to our efforts, we have been named a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, and are the only such center based in Florida.
