What is a gynecologic oncologist?
A gynecologic oncologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating cancers arising from the female reproductive tract. After completing a four year obstetrics and gynecology residency, a gynecologic oncologist undergoes an additional three to four years of subspecialty training through an accredited fellowship program. This intensive training spans surgical, chemotherapeutic, radiation and research techniques that are important to providing the best care for gynecologic cancer patients. Physicians who complete this training are double board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology as well as gynecologic oncology.
The gynecologic oncologist serves as the lead of a woman’s cancer care team. It is important to consult with a gynecologic oncologist before treatment is started so that the best treatment regimen is chosen for you.
