Personal Statement

Dr. Evelyn Cantillo completed her undergraduate studies at Cornell University prior to pursuing a Master’s degree in Public Health at Columbia University. She subsequently earned a medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine graduating with special distinction in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology was completed at Tulane University followed by a fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology and Breast Disease at the Women & Infants Hospital/Brown University.   

Dr. Cantillo’s practice encompasses the surgical and medical management of the broad spectrum of gynecologic malignancies including uterine, ovary, cervix, vulva, and vagina. She is extensively trained in minimally invasive surgical techniques using traditional laparoscopy as well as robotic platforms for gynecologic cancer and complex benign conditions.   

Dr. Cantillo believes that every woman with gynecologic cancer should have access to the full complement of care. With this in mind, her aim is to expand access to clinical trials should this become necessary. She is a member of the New Investigators Committee of the national NRG (formerly Gynecologic Oncology Group/GOG). It is important to her that all populations be afforded the same opportunities and treatment.   

Her interests also include medical education. She has received numerous teaching and surgical awards during residency and fellowship training. She has also presented her research at regional and national conferences.
