Cancer begins when the very small units in the reproductive tract, called cells, begin growing abnormally. When cancer cells begin growing out of control, they can form abnormal tissue called tumors, which replace healthy tissue. If not treated early enough, the cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body.
We offer a full-time program for diagnosing and treating gynecologic cancers. Our board-certified gynecologic oncologists are available for consultation, pretreatment planning, treatment and follow-up care.
We also offer a variety of other services when needed:
- Coordination of radiation therapy
- Jin Shin Jyutsu
- Therapeutic Massage Therapy
- Guided Imagery
We believe that patients respond best when treated with a comprehensive, integrated strategy that treats the whole patient—physically, psychologically and emotionally.
