Women from Boca Raton, FL, who are considering a total hysterectomy can get the treatment and care they need at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. We are the only cancer center based in Florida that has been designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute – a recognition of our dedication to developing and perfecting effective methods for cancer treatment. At Moffitt, we offer surgical options that use advanced technologies like robotics, and we tailor each patient’s treatment plan to determine the surgical option that’s best for her.
A total hysterectomy, which involves the surgical removal of the entire uterus and cervix, may be recommended for ovarian cancer treatment. A surgeon may also remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes at the same time by performing a procedure known as a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. At Moffitt, we have surgeons who exclusively perform procedures for the treatment of ovarian cancer, and as a high-volume cancer center (the third-largest in the nation based on patient volume), we perform many of these surgeries every year. It is our surgeons’ experience that makes the difference in improving the quality of life for our patients both during and after treatment.
In addition to our surgeons’ expertise, women who come to Moffitt from Boca Raton, FL, for total hysterectomy procedures benefit from our multispecialty approach to cancer treatment. Each patient’s case is initially reviewed by a tumor board of cancer specialists who work collaboratively to analyze the tumor’s size and location, and then meets every week to evaluate the effectiveness of the prescribed therapies and make adjustments to the treatment plan as necessary. The specialists on our tumor board include:
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Experienced nurses
At Moffitt, we understand that undergoing cancer treatment can be stressful, and we try to make it a little easier on our out-of-town patients by providing information on safe, comfortable and convenient accommodations. We have partnered with several local hotels that offer discounted rates to our patients and meet or exceed our strict hygiene and infection control standards. This can help our patients and their families focus on what’s most important: the patient’s health and well-being.
