Gynecologic Cancer

HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Cancer Centers, along with Prevea Health, are pleased to offer outstanding and quality health care to our region through the expertise of a gynecologic oncologist practicing exclusively in northeastern Wisconsin.

Your care will be given in a private women-centered setting. For those living outside of the Green Bay metro area, we will coordinate your care with specialists throughout the region to ease the burden of travel.

Our fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologist is an experienced surgeon who performs surgeries using robotic-assisted or minimally-invasive techniques. Our Cancer Research Institute offers qualifying patients advanced treatment options not found elsewhere in the region.

Numerous documented studies have shown the benefits of having a gynecologic cancer treated by a fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologist, including:

  • Ovarian cancer mortality rates are reported to decrease by 25 percent when surgery is performed by a gynecologic oncologist compared to an obstetrician/gynecologist or general surgeon.
  • A gynecologic oncologist is 2.5 times more likely to accurately diagnosis the stage of gynecologic cancer and, in turn, develop a proper treatment plan.
  • Surgical therapy by a gynecologic oncologist for early cervical cancer may eliminate the need for postoperative radiation therapy and any associated side effects.

Gynecologic Cancer Care Team
Throughout your journey to wellness, you will meet with specialists who work together to provide you with the very best care possible. Coordination of your care occurs between members of this treatment team both individually, or as a group in meetings we call “Tumor Board”.

Each week, HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Cancer Centers hosts meetings to allow our team to collaboratively develop individualized treatment plans to meet the precious needs of our patients. Surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, genetic counselors, radiologists, pathologists, clinical research professionals, nursing and other supportive staff all attend these tumor board meetings. All of these experts are sitting together, reviewing your history, pathology, and imaging studies and discussing the most appropriate course of treatment for you.

Between these meetings, this multidisciplinary team continues to work together one-on-one, as needed, to meet your individual needs. You can be assured this team of skilled experts is working closely together to develop the best treatment plan possible to treat your cancer and to give you all treatment options available.
