When cancer is present in an ovary, unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery may be a recommended treatment option. This procedure, which involves the surgical removal of one ovary and its adjoining fallopian tube, is available to women from Boca Raton, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in nearby Tampa. Each year, thousands of cancer patients from around the state and across the country entrust their health to our fellowship-trained surgeons. These talented surgeons exclusively perform procedures related to their respective fields of specialty (gynecological cancers, for example), granting them a superior level of expertise that translates into better treatment experiences for our patients.
As part of our commitment to advancing ovarian cancer treatment, Moffitt also provides each patient with access to a multispecialty treatment team with a diverse approach. This tumor board of cancer specialists includes gynecological oncologists, pathologists, reproductive endocrinologists, dietitians and other medical and supportive care professionals who are dedicated to enhancing patient quality of life. Each ovarian cancer patient’s case is continually reviewed by our tumor board, and her individualized treatment plan is refined as necessary based on her progress and health care preferences.
