Gynecologic Cancers

St. Vincent GYN Oncology is a national leader in treating female cancers

Gynecologic (GYN) cancer refers to the cancers of the female reproductive system (ovarian, cervical, uterine/endometrial cancer, vulvar and leiomyosarcoma ). At St. Vincent Cancer Care the Gynecologic Oncology (GYN/ONC) Clinic is the largest in the state of Indiana, treating more women with gynecologic malignancies than other medical groups. Our board-certified GYN/ONC physicians and staff have created a personalized healing environment for women diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer. Our GYN/ONC physicians are well-suited for challenging and complex cases and use world-class treatments to improve recovery times and overall outcomes.

Special interests of the GYN/ONC physicians:

  • Treating Gestational trophoblastic diseases (rare tumors that develop in the uterus)
  • Treating high-risk patients due to family history and genetic profile for ovarian and endometrial cancers
  • Personalizing the surgical and chemotherapy management of early and advanced uterine, cervical, vulvar, and ovarian cancer patients
  • Managing GYN cancers using intraperitoneal chemotherapy
  • Researching the molecular and clinical aspects of endometrial cancer, as well as, other gynecologic malignancies
  • Utilizing the da Vinci® robotic surgery to improve outcomes in obese patients
  • Leading clinical trials locally to directly benefit our patients.

Genetic risk assessment and counseling is a part of the clinic experience for women with ovarian and endometrial cancers. Throughout your journey, a dedicated patient navigator, based out of the clinic, is always available by phone to get answers to your questions. The physician assistants are another resource educating each patient is an important component of this program.


Treating women for GYN cancers from a three state area

Our patients come from all parts of Indiana, and parts of Ohio and Illinois.The GYN/ONC Clinic is located in the St. Vincent Professional Office Building (POB) on 8402 Harcourt Rd. Suite 420, Indianapolis, IN, 317-583-2496. This medical group works closely with the medical oncologists and radiation oncologists at the St. Vincent Cancer Center across the street, as well as, Supportive Services and Survivorship Programs at St. Vincent Health.

Our GYN Oncologists are researchers, clinicians, teachers, and advocates for women with these cancers. Many are lead investigators in national multi-site and local research studies. The GYN/ONC clinic is also a rotation in the St. Vincent Medical Residency Program.


A Holistic Approach – healing the body, mind and spirit

Preventing these types of female reproductive organ cancers is very important and while the St. Vincent GYN/ONC Clinic is not a cancer screening clinic, it is a leader in educating primary care and OB/GYN physicians, as well as, women at high risk for cancer how to prevent and detect these cancers early. For example, women who are overweight or obese have a higher risk for GYN cancers.
