At Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, we offer a comprehensive cancer program that provides a range of options for treating uterine and endometrial cancer. Our gynecologic oncologists are board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and have completed additional training required for treating cancer. This training includes all currently available forms of uterine cancer treatment, including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and clinical trials.
Our gynecologic oncologists will communicate regularly with other Penn specialists and members of your care team to provide comprehensive, integrated care. Our oncofertility program is experienced in creating fertility-sparing treatment plans when current or future pregnancy is a consideration.
