Moffitt Cancer Center Offers Unilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy Surgery to Ovarian Cancer Patients from the Orlando, FL, Area
Ovarian cancer patients from the Orlando, Florida, area who are in need of a unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy procedure, or the surgical removal of one ovary and fallopian tube, are welcome to come to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Moffitt’s tailored treatment plans, fertility preservation methods, innovative clinical trial program and track record of successful surgical outcomes are among the many reasons patients from near and far trust our multispecialty team to provide comprehensive ovarian cancer care, including surgical intervention.
Moffitt is the third largest cancer center in the United States in terms of patient volume, and the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida. Our commitment to advancing cancer care is evident in all phases of patient treatment and support, including after surgery. Tumors removed during surgery are assessed by a tumor board comprised of Moffitt cancer specialists. These specialists implement necessary modifications to a patient’s individualized treatment plan according to the findings and meet weekly to monitor each patient’s progress.
A patient who travels from the Orlando, FL, area to receive ovarian cancer treatment at Moffitt can be confident in her decision to trust our team for unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery. Moffitt’s highly experienced, fellowship-trained surgeons use minimally invasive techniques, some involving advanced robotics, which can accelerate recovery. And, to help our patients make informed treatment decisions, our surgical team devotes ample time to thoroughly explaining details of this operation and answering any questions or concerns prior to surgery.
Treating ovarian cancer is often complex, and usually calls for a combination of multiple therapies in conjunction with surgery. That’s why Moffitt’s approach to ovarian cancer care is thorough, and encompasses multiple specialties that enhance our patients’ overall well-being and quality of life. In addition to our surgeons and nurses, our surgical teams include:
- Lab personnel
- Social workers
To eliminate as many challenges as possible for patients traveling from other cities to receive treatment and support for ovarian cancer, Moffitt has partnered with several Tampa-area hotels that offer our patients discounted rates. These hotels comply with our strict guidelines regarding hygiene and infection control to protect our patients, especially those with compromised immune systems.
