Unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery is sometimes necessary for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. For patients in the West Palm Beach, Florida, area who have been advised by a physician to consider this procedure and are seeking an experienced surgeon, Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa offers world-renowned diagnostic testing, treatment options and supportive care services – all at one convenient location.
When ovarian cancer patients turn to Moffitt for treatment, our multispecialty team of gynecological cancer experts evaluates each case to determine whether a unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is the best course of action and establish a treatment plan. This team may incorporate a variety of specialists, including:
- Medical oncologists
- Gynecologic oncologists
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Social workers
If our team confirms that a unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, or the removal of one ovary and its connecting fallopian tube, is the best way to address cancerous cells, the surgery will be performed by a fellowship-trained surgeon who specializes in ovarian cancer and has completed a high volume of these procedures.
For patients coming from the West Palm Beach or surrounding south Florida areas for their unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy procedures, Moffitt offers travel assistance. We have partnered with several nearby hotels that offer our patients discounted rates and meet or exceed our stringent infection control and hygiene standards. By doing so, we help ensure that our ovarian cancer patients can worry less about finding accommodations and focus more on improving their health.
