Gynecological Cancer

Gynecologic cancers, affecting a woman’s reproductive system, include cancers of the vagina, cervix, uterus, ovaries, vulva, and fallopian tubes. If you suspect that you have a gynecologic cancer or have been diagnosed with one, Carilion Clinic offers compassionate, individualized care, advanced diagnostic technology, and innovative treatment options to ensure your best possible chance of recovery, while at all times continuing to maintain focus on your quality of life. We’re proud of our state-of-the-art GYN cancer care, including minimally invasive and robotic procedures performed with the da Vinci Surgical System.

Compassionate, Individualized Care from Experts

Carilion's cancer treatment program, in collaboration with the physicians of Blue Ridge Cancer Care, provides the full range of gynecological cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, on both an in-patient and out-patient basis.

We emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to care. Every patient benefits from the collaborative expertise of an experienced team of specialists who meet regularly to discuss each patient’s care and progress.

Addressing every type and stage of cancer of women’s reproductive organs, our inpatient and outpatient services for gynecological cancers include:


Our Team

We encourage patients and their loved ones to participate in a wide range of complementary and alternative treatments, including support groups, nutritional counseling, massage, and more.

Gynecologic oncologists are physicians who, in addition to being trained in obstetrics and gynecology, receive training in the management of women with cancer of the female organs. They manage care from diagnosis through surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

Our extended care team is located throughout western Virginia and includes radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiation therapists, nurses, social workers, and support staff. We also have a nurse practitioner who coordinates care in the role of nurse navigator. Our caregivers combine the latest in medical expertise with a patient-centered approach to care that focuses on the unique needs of each individual.
