Gynecologic Oncology Services
Loyola is a regional center in caring for women with all types of gynecologic cancer: ovarian, cervical, endometrial, uterine, vaginal, fallopian tube and vulvar. The Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center provides expanded clinics, diagnostic capabilities and laboratories for the program.
The gyne/onc physicians provide diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, including radical surgeries, minimally invasive surgeries when appropriate, chemotherapy and referrals to radiation oncology when indicated. We also provide all necessary follow up care for patients with gynecologic malignancies. The gyne/onc team treats patients with other complex gynecologic diagnoses. They work in conjunction with medical oncologists, specialty radiologists, radiation oncologists and social work to provide a team approach to the female oncology patient.
Loyola offers unique opportunities for patients to participate in national cooperative group and drug company studies with new and innovative medications and treatments.
Genetic testing is available for high-risk families.
The gyne/onc physicians collaborate closely with Loyola’s radiation oncologists who offer state-of-the-art capabilities and expertise here on our campus.
Loyola is one of the first medical centers in the Chicago area to offer minimally invasive robotic surgery for women's pelvic surgeries, including hysterectomy.
