What is a Gynecologic Oncologist?

A gynecologic oncologist is an obstetrician/gynecologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs. 

After completing a four-year residency in obstetrics and gynecology, gynecologic oncologists must complete an additional three-year fellowship specializing in precancerous and cancerous conditions of the GYN tract. Surgical skills required to properly stage and remove the majority of the tumor, as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy techniques, are learned and practiced at the highest skill level. This training uniquely qualifies gynecologic oncologists to care for women with cancer of the reproductive tract. 

Research over the past two decades has shown that referral to a gynecologic oncologist is one of the top factors in increasing ovarian cancer survival rates, as well as decreasing rates of recurrence.
