Our gynecological oncology facilities at Medicana Health Group are staffed by highly skilled and knowledgeable medical specialists who use cutting-edge equipment and cutting-edge treatment methods to provide superior care to women diagnosed with gynecological cancer.

A comprehensive array of diagnostic and therapeutic services are provided by our gynecological oncology units, including:

Comprehensive Cancer Diagnosis and Screening

An essential component of gynecological oncology is comprehensive cancer screening and diagnostics, which attempts to identify tumors early and offer rapid and accurate diagnosis. Gynecological oncologists at Medicana Hospitals assess a patient's status using a variety of screening and diagnostic techniques, such as physical examinations, ultrasonography, biopsies, and laboratory tests.

Pap smears and HPV tests are routinely used to check for cancer cells in cases of cervical cancer. Transvaginal ultrasonography and CA-125 blood tests are frequently used to identify ovarian cancer. In addition to pelvic exams, ultrasound, and biopsy, endometrial cancer can also be detected by screening.

Gynecological oncologists at Medicana Hospitals will utilize their experience to identify the stage and kind of cancer in a patient if it is discovered that they have it; this information will help establish the patient's treatment strategy. To give the best care possible, the gynecological oncologists will collaborate closely with a group of specialists, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists.

The gynecological oncologists at Medicana offer the best cancer screening and diagnosis services thanks to their extensive training, specialization, and dedication to patient care. They are committed to giving patients the required treatment, whether they seek routine screening or require an immediate and accurate cancer diagnosis.

Medical Oncology

Two significant subspecialties in oncology focus on the diagnosis, care, and treatment of cancer patients: medical oncology and gynecological oncology.

Medical oncologists focus on using chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and other systemic medicines to treat cancer. They collaborate closely with the other cancer care team members to create individualized treatment regimens for every patient, considering the patient's general wellbeing, the kind and stage of their disease, and any other pertinent considerations.

Conversely, gynecological oncologists are experts in the detection and management of malignancies of the female reproductive system, such as those of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, and fallopian tubes. They treat these cancers and assist patients in regaining their health and quality of life by utilizing a variety of treatments, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

Gynecological oncologists and medical oncologists at Medicana Health Group are skilled doctors who employ the most recent diagnostic methods and therapeutic approaches to give our patients the finest care possible. With cutting-edge tools, techniques, and a patient-centered philosophy, we are dedicated to assisting our patients in achieving the most outstanding results.

Radiation Oncology

A specialist area of medicine called radiation oncology involves employing radiation therapy to treat cancer. High-energy radiation beams, such as X-rays and gamma rays, are used in this therapy to destroy cancer cells and reduce tumor size. To provide comprehensive cancer care, radiation therapy is frequently used in conjunction with other treatments, like chemotherapy and surgery.

The objective of radiation oncology is to enhance radiation's ability to combat cancer while limiting its adverse effects on nearby healthy tissue. To do this, radiation oncologists collaborate closely with medical specialists, such as radiation therapists, dosimetrists, and medical physicists, to create a unique treatment plan for each patient.

Radiation oncologists can deliver more precise radiation doses to the cancer site using cutting-edge technologies like Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) and Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), which minimizes the risk of side effects and increases the likelihood of a successful outcome.

A subfield of oncology known as gynecological oncology specializes in detecting and managing cancers that affect the female reproductive system, specifically the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. This specialty treats gynecological cancers comprehensively by combining the skills of gynecologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists.

In gynecological oncology, medical and radiation oncologists collaborate to create a specific treatment plan that, depending on the kind and stage of the disease, may involve surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The three primary treatment objectives are curing the cancer, stopping its spread, and enhancing the patient's quality of life.

The Hematology and Oncology Departments of Medicana Health Group are committed to assisting cancer patients to achieve the most significant outcomes by offering cutting-edge cancer care and a patient-centered approach. Our team of skilled doctors and staff will work with you to give you the care and support you need to combat cancer and regain your health, whether you require gynecological oncology or medical oncology.

For many gynecological cancers, surgery is a popular therapeutic option and is crucial to the disease's care. Gynecological oncologists are highly skilled professionals with a wealth of experience operating on gynecological cancers such as cervical, ovarian, endometrial, vulvar, and vaginal cancers.

We provide both minimally invasive and open surgical solutions depending on the particular situation and patient demand.

Gynecological oncologists collaborate closely with experts in pain management in these situations to create tailored pain treatment plans for each patient.

This strategy may include combining methods and remedies to lessen or eliminate pain. These could consist of pills, nerve blocks, and other injections. Complementary pain management methods, including acupuncture, massage, and physical therapy, are also options.

Physical therapy can assist damaged body parts become more mobile, flexible, and strong while reducing pain. The purpose of rehabilitation is to help a person regain their capacity for daily tasks and reach their pre-injury level of function.

A team of rehabilitation and physical therapy professionals at Medicana's gynecological oncology units collaborate with patients to create a custom treatment plan to aid their recovery following surgery or other medical procedures. This can involve methods to control discomfort and encourage healing and exercises to increase strength and range of motion.

Physical therapy can also lower the risk of complications after surgery and enhance the results. For individuals who have been immobilized for a prolonged period due to surgery or sickness, physical therapy can, for instance, restore circulation and help prevent blood clots.

Rehabilitation and physical therapy can also enhance a person's emotional wellbeing and assist in managing fatigue. Gynecological cancer patients might suffer significant changes to their physical and emotional wellbeing as a result of their condition and therapies, making the physical and mental benefits of rehabilitation particularly crucial for them.

Support Services

Support services are essential to the general care and treatment of gynecological oncology patients. These programs are designed to meet patients and their families' practical, psychological, and emotional requirements. In gynecological oncology departments, standard support services include:

  • Counseling and emotional support: To help patients and their families deal with the stress and anxiety that often accompany a cancer diagnosis, skilled psychologists and social workers may be of assistance.
  • Nutritional support: Patients may receive suggestions on eating healthily while undergoing treatment and counseling on dealing with any side effects, such as nausea and appetite loss.
