Gynecologic Oncology (68th Street, J-130)
The gynecologic oncologists at Weill Cornell Medicine are specialists trained to diagnose and treat different types of cancer of the reproductive organs. The dedicated focus of their practice, backed by years of specialty training, is just one reason why women under the care of gynecologic oncologists achieve better outcomes. Another reason for higher rates of success by gynecologic oncologists is the remarkable range of skills they possess and the breadth of their specialized skills – from prevention regimens and advanced diagnostic capability to surgical skills for the removal of tumors, and even the administering chemotherapy and radiation therapy for many forms of cancer, including:
- Cervical cancer
- Endometrial and other uterine cancers
- Ovarian cancer
- Vaginal cancer
- Cancer of the vulva
Our gynecologic oncologists also play a significant role in coordinating multidisciplinary team treatment options that include the following:
- Minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery
- Advanced reconstructive and complex pelvic surgery
- Intra-operative radiation therapy
- Robotic surgery
- Radiation therapy
- State-of-the-art chemotherapy
We know how important it is that a patient be seen by a qualified specialist as soon as possible. Our aim is to get you into the office without delay, so we can review your case, establish the best treatment plan -- and put it into action.
What Our Patients Are Saying
"Excellent care. I was fully informed of the procedure and felt well afterwards. Even though followed dicharge directions faithfully, I had a delayed side effect. Holcomb was very helpful and empathetic explaining what I should do in the future in case of a repetitive occurrence."
"Oh my god Dr Caputo has to be the best Dr anywhere! I am so lucky to be his patient. He is so smart and experienced yet warm and patient. He never makes any of his patients feel rushed. He has such a calm positive demeanor that the minute I see him all my nervousness and fears disappear. He has been treating me for 10 years, and I’ve had cancer for ten years. This man is a gem and the worse day of my life is when he retires. I hope never!"
"Dr Chapman-Davis is knowledgeable, competent, and experienced. She is energetic and straightforward and inspires confidence in my ability to move forward in my healing process. I feel fortunate in having her for my doctor."
