Ovarian cancer is a cancer of the ovaries, the female reproductive organs. Three main types of tumors exist in the ovaries – epithelial tumors, germ cell tumors and stromal tumors. Ovarian tumors can be benign or cancerous; however, often times, both types of tumors require treatment.
The physicians at GCI are skilled at performing surgeries for patients with ovarian cancer and have treated many patients with different types of ovarian cancers. Whenever it is safe and feasible they utilize a minimally invasive approach to surgery for ovarian cancer. GCI also administers chemotherapy for the treatment of ovarian cancer and the team ensures that our patients are well educated and supported throughout the treatment process for ovarian cancer.
