Women from Cape Coral, FL, who are considering a total hysterectomy as a part of their ovarian cancer treatment can turn to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. A total hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of the entire uterus and cervix. Sometimes, the ovaries and fallopian tubes are also removed in a procedure known as a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
If a total hysterectomy is recommended for a patient’s ovarian cancer treatment, it’s important for her to choose a surgeon who has extensive experience, as this can greatly impact her quality of life post-surgery. Moffitt is the third-largest cancer center in the nation based on patient volume, and our surgeons perform a high number of total hysterectomy surgeries. Additionally, Moffitt’s surgeons have refined skills in all types of surgical methods, including advanced, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted techniques.
When a woman turns to Moffitt for ovarian cancer treatment, she’ll have access to a full team of cancer specialists who work together as a tumor board to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. As a result, our patients receive multiple professional opinions without referrals. The tumor board will continually monitor the extent of the cancer, as well as the tumor’s size and location, and make adjustments to the treatment plan accordingly. The tumor board consists of:
- Radiation oncologists
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- And other experienced supportive care workers
