Gynecologic Cancers

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way gynecologic cancers are prevented, detected, treated and, yes, cured.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there are no routine gynecologic cancers.

Gynecologic cancers are complex diseases. Each patient’s cancer is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective gynecologic cancer detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of gynecologic cancer subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from gynecologic oncologists and radiation oncologists to molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in a specific kind of gynecologic cancer (and only gynecologic cancer) research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.  

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual gynecologic cancer patient.  

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.
