We offer our patients a range of treatment options, which alone or in combination provide them with their best opportunity for recovery.
Depending on the type and stage of your cancer your treatment may include:
- Radiation therapy (Your gynecologist will coordinate with the radiation oncology team)
- External Beam
- Stereotactic radiosurgery
- Hormone therapy
Our treatment plans are leading edge and complete. We are committed to open and clear communication with our patients to ensure that you understand what to expect every step of the way. For patients receiving chemotherapy, hydration, infusions, injections or genetic testing in our office, we provide a relaxed, comfortable, safe and supportive environment under the care of our highly qualified nursing staff. Patients can receive all their treatments at one location at the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center at the Rocco and Nancy Ortenzio Cancer Pavilion at UPMC West Shore.
