Ovarian Cancer Surgery and Other Treatment Options for Women with Cancer in West Palm Beach, FL
State-of-the-art ovarian cancer surgery and breast cancer surgery techniques, including robot-assisted and minimally invasive procedures, are available to patients from West Palm Beach, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Our multispecialty team of experts has the collective expertise necessary to effectively treat ovarian and breast cancer. To ensure the most comprehensive care possible for our patients, each woman’s treatment plan is designed through the collaborative efforts of highly skilled gynecologic oncologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons, radiologists, radiation oncologists, reproductive endocrinologists and supportive care providers.
For instance, if a patient is advised to consider ovarian cancer surgery, one of the following techniques may be recommended:
- Cytoreductive/debulking surgery – A surgeon removes as much tumor tissue as is safely possible, which could include the removal of tissue from nearby organs, such as the spleen, gallbladder, stomach, bladder or colon
- Unilateral or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – A surgeon removes one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes
- Partial or total hysterectomy – A surgeon removes the uterus or both the uterus and cervix
- Lymph node dissection – A surgeon removes the lymph nodes in the pelvic and para-aortic areas
- Omentectomy – A surgeon removes the fat pad inside the abdomen that covers the stomach and large intestine
