We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is dedicated to the care of women with gynecologic cancers. The clinical program is comprehensive and incorporates all aspects of surgical and medical management, including:
Surgery including radical and reconstructive procedures
Medical treatment including on-site chemotherapy
Complex benign gynecologic surgery
Laparoscopic and robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery
Consultation for women at risk for gynecologic cancer
Access to clinical trials and novel therapies
Our mission is to provide the highest level of comprehensive, individualized patient care. Our surgical expertise encompasses the latest techniques in minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopy and robotic-assisted surgery. We strive to provide appropriate surgical treatment while at the same time minimizing pain and disability after surgery. We also offer medical therapy, which is often necessary in conjunction with surgery to achieve the most optimal outcomes. These treatments include all forms of chemotherapy, including intraperitoneal chemotherapy. Our staff work closely with a multidisciplinary group of physicians and nurses in order to come up with a treatment plan that best suits each individual patient.
Research is an important part of our program. For over twenty years, our Division has been a member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), a national cooperative trials organization funded by the National Cancer Institute that is committed to advancing research in gynecologic cancer. Clinical trials sponsored by the GOG offer our patients the latest and most advanced innovations in surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, biologic therapy, and cancer prevention.
The Division provides on-site consultative and surgical services to MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham. To make an appointment, please call 800-872-5473.
