We provide professional support in Gynecologic Surgical Oncology Department.
We perform the surgical treatment of cancer diseases in
the female reproductive organs at our gynecologic surgical oncology department.
We evaluate the most suitable treatment options for our female patients
diagnosed with cancer using a multidisciplinary approach, and apply the
surgical treatment process that best suits the patient.
Female reproductive organs are ovaries, uterus, fallopian
tubes that transport the fertilized eggs to the uterus, vagina and vulva that
limits the vaginal opening. Cancers of the female reproductive organs are
called gynecologic cancers. The branch of science that examines cancers
stemming from these organs is called gynecologic oncology. Our doctors dealing
with gynecologic oncology and treat these diseases have experience and
knowledge on early diagnosis of these diseases, surgical treatment with
advanced methods, and treatments to be employed after surgery (radiation
therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapies, etc.)
The most common types of gynecologic cancers are
cervical, uterine and ovarian cancers. Cervix is the part of the uterus
connecting the uterus to the vagina. The cellular tissue of the cervix is
different than the cellular tissue of the uterus. For this reason, cervical
cancers have different development and spreading characteristics than uterine
cancers. At our Gynecologic Oncology Department, we can treat all gynecological
malignancies such as cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vulvar
cancer, vaginal cancer and gestational trophoblastic tumors.
In early stage endometrial and cervical cancer cases, the
laparoscopic approach is preferred as this approach leads to faster recovery
and less pain. We perform laparoscopic surgeries of gynecologic malignancies at
high quality standards and without problem.
Instant diagnosis is possible since pathologists who
attend the surgery evaluate the extracted piece (frozen section) at the
instant. Thanks to our high technological infrastructure, pre-op radiology
examinations are reviewed by our surgeons and radiologists also during the operation.
Post-op treatment decisions are made at “Tumor Councils”
held regularly with the participation of specialists from medical oncology,
radiology and pathology departments.
