Many patients from Orlando, Florida, who are seeking total hysterectomy surgery for ovarian cancer choose to receive treatment from the skilled surgeons at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. At our gynecological clinic, we provide each patient with highly individualized care by developing a treatment plan tailored to meet her specific needs. Each patient’s case is reviewed by a tumor board of cancer specialists that meets weekly to continually evaluate the patient’s progress. This talented team assesses key factors of the patient’s case, such as the size, grade and location of the tumors, and collaboratively monitors and refines the treatment plan as needed.
At Moffitt, our multispecialty approach means that each total hysterectomy patient has access to an entire team of experts – rather than a single physician – who work together to identify and recommend the best approach to treatment. This team includes a wide range of cancer specialists, including:
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Plastic surgeons
- Social workers
If total hysterectomy surgery is recommended for an ovarian cancer patient, the procedure will involve the removal of the uterus, and possibly the cervix. In some cases, the fallopian tubes and ovaries are removed during the same procedure, which is known as bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. By performing complex surgeries like these, our surgeons have helped thousands of patients fight cancer.
Because each surgeon at Moffitt focuses on a specific area of expertise, our gynecologic oncologists perform a high volume of total hysterectomy surgeries, unlike other cancer centers that may only complete a few of these procedures each year. This is important because each surgery is complex and a surgeon’s skills increase with each procedure performed. As a result, Moffitt has earned an international reputation as a world leader in performing complex cancer surgeries, including minimally invasive robotic-assisted procedures, as well as fertility preservation therapies.
