A unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, or the surgical removal of one ovary and fallopian tube, may be necessary to help treat ovarian cancer in certain patients. Women from the Cape Coral, Florida, area who require this surgery can receive treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. As the third largest cancer center in the nation based on patient volume, we welcome thousands of patients from across the state and beyond. We also hold the distinction of being the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida.
The renowned surgical expertise of our fellowship-trained surgeons is one of the many reasons cancer patients who reside outside of Tampa trust Moffitt for cancer treatment and supportive care. Our surgeons exclusively perform procedures related to their field of specialty (such as gynecological cancers) using innovative and often minimally invasive surgical techniques, and possess an exceptional amount of experience. This superior level of surgical expertise, combined with Moffitt’s efforts in advancing cancer treatment through groundbreaking research initiatives and clinical trials, helps us provide a better quality of life for our patients.
Moffitt’s surgeons collaborate with an entire team of experts from various specialties to ensure each patient receives comprehensive treatment and support designed to address her unique type of cancer. For example, ovarian cancer treatment teams may include:
- Gynecologic oncologists
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Other medical professionals and supportive care providers
At Moffitt, we understand the unique challenges a cancer diagnosis can bring, and strive to eliminate as many inconveniences as possible for our patients traveling from the Cape Coral, FL, area for a unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery or other forms of ovarian cancer treatment. This is why we’ve partnered with several nearby hotels that provide discounted rates to Moffitt patients. These hotels meet or exceed our high standards regarding hygiene and infection control in consideration for our patients with compromised immune systems. In addition, Moffitt patients receive treatment and care at a single campus, so there’s no need for patients to drive to multiple physicians’ offices and surgical centers during their stay.
