A high volume of unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy procedures are performed for ovarian cancer patients from the Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida area and beyond at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. This surgery, which involves removing one ovary and fallopian tube, is executed by highly experienced, fellowship-trained surgeons who specialize exclusively in ovarian cancer treatment. Because of our exceptional level of surgical expertise, thousands of patients from near and far trust Moffitt to provide individualized cancer care that enhances quality of life, multispecialty support and hope.
Our patient satisfaction rate consistently ranks at an unparalleled 95 percent, thanks in part to our tailored approach to treatment. At Moffitt, we understand no two cases of ovarian cancer are the same, and a highly individualized treatment plan is necessary to achieve the best possible outcomes. Each week, Moffitt assembles a tumor board of cancer specialists to continually refine each patient’s treatment plan according to their specific type of cancer. Moreover, we spearhead multiple research initiatives and groundbreaking clinical trials to advance the ways that each type can be addressed, and to continue to make the impossible, possible.
In addition to our unique approach to treatment, there are several factors that contribute to Moffitt’s reputation as a leader in cancer surgery and overall cancer care. For example:
- We are the third largest cancer center in the nation by patient volume, and the only National Cancer Center Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida.
- When possible, our surgeons utilize minimally invasive techniques, many of which involve advanced robotics, to achieve more successful surgical outcomes and more comfortable post-operative experiences.
- We perform a higher volume of virtually every complex cancer surgery than other cancer centers, including unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy procedures.
