Helping you fight gynecology cancer with a personalized treatment plan

There are many ways of treating gynecological cancers, and, whatever your course of treatment involves, our specialists are here to care for and guide you through each step, from diagnosis through surveillance. While chemotherapy or radiation therapy may be used to treat gynecologic cancer, surgery may also be necessary in some cases.

Our gynecologic oncologists, Drs. Kevin Davis and Mary Jo Schmitz, perform surgeries in specially designed and equipped gynecologic surgery rooms on the female-only floor of the hospital. Patients admitted after surgery will spend time recovering in private rooms on the fifth floor in a unit dedicated to postoperative care and recovery for gynecologic surgery patients. Additionally, we partner with experts in oncology rehabilitation to offer our patients comprehensive rehabilitation to mitigate the development of long-term abnormities resulting from oncology treatment.

Robotic surgery: Advanced technology in gynecologic cancer treatment

Swedish is proud to offer the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform minimally invasive surgeries on gynecologic cancer patients. We are the only gynecologic oncology program using robotic surgery in the Rocky Mountain region.

This leading-edge technology gives surgeons enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and better control, allowing the surgeon to perform complicated procedures through just a few small incisions. The benefits of robotic surgery for the patient are:

  • Less time in the hospital
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery time and ability to get back to your life more quickly
