Total Hysterectomy Procedures for Ovarian Cancer Patients from Ft. Myers & Naples, FL
Ovarian cancer patients from Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida, who require a total hysterectomy, or the removal of the uterus and cervix, are welcome to receive treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Patients from around the globe rely on our fellowship-trained surgeons for every type of cancer procedure available. In fact, Moffitt treats thousands of cancer patients each year as the third-largest cancer center by patient volume in the nation, and achieves an exceptionally high number of successful surgical outcomes.
A total hysterectomy is typically performed in conjunction with a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, or the removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes, for an ovarian cancer patient whose cancer has spread to the surrounding reproductive organs. A hysterectomy may also be performed as a preventive measure. A woman who chooses Moffitt for this treatment – no matter the reason – can benefit from our minimally invasive surgical techniques that accelerate recovery and can help eliminate some of the usual post-operative inconveniences. Furthermore, Moffitt’s total hysterectomy procedures are performed by highly experienced surgeons who specialize in ovarian cancer treatment exclusively, so a patient traveling from other parts of the state can be confident in her decision to trust our team for her cancer care.
In addition to the caliber of our ovarian cancer surgeons and the innovative surgical techniques they practice, Moffitt stands apart from other cancer centers for a number of reasons:
