Diagnosis & Treatment of Gynecologic Cancers

Early Diagnosis & Staging

Advanced strategies for early diagnosis and staging of all types of gynecologic cancers, including:

  • Human papillomavirus testing in addition to Pap smear.
  • Colposcopic assessment for cervical pre-invasive and invasive disease.
  • Same-day in-clinic fine needle aspiration as indicated.
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET/CT Scan) as indicated.
  • Interventional radiology for image-guided biopsy.
  • Robotic surgery (see minimally invasive surgery).

Gynecologic Oncology Group Clinical Trials Participant

In partnership with the Gynecologic Oncology Group, Hollings is able to offers opportunities to participate in national Phase III clinical trials specific to gynecologic cancers providing access to cancer-fighting agents not yet available in regular practice.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our team is trained in the use of laparoscopic surgery and the da Vinci Surgical System, a robot that helps to increase surgical precision. These techniques are used for:

  • Early pelvic mass evaluations.
  • Staging and treatment for early endometrial, ovarian and cervical cancer.
  • Robotic-assisted laparoscopic lymph node assessment.

Radiation Therapy

  • Specialized radiation oncology services to target therapy and decrease side effects.
  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in addition to traditional external beam radiation.
  • Vaginal brachytherapy for treatment of endometrial cancers.
