Gynecologic cancer surgery

Gynecologic cancers include:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Endometrial cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Vaginal cancer
  • Vulvar cancer
  • Uterine cancer

Our surgical oncologists specialize in minimally invasive gynecologic cancer surgeries, which results in a faster and more comfortable recovery.

For example, laparoscopic surgery uses tiny tools inserted into the body through a thin, lighted tube (laparoscope). The procedure can be used to check for certain conditions and remove tissues. We can also treat gynecologic cancer with the da Vinci® Surgical System, which enables us to operate on hard-to-reach tumors.

Our expert physicians in Naperville and Elmhurst are skilled in treating gynecologic cancers.
