Gynecologic OncologyGynecologic cancer is the growth of abnormal cells originating in the female reproductive organs, including the cervix, ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, vagina and vulva. Each year, more than 80,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cancer of the reproductive organs. At Sarasota Memorial’s Institute for Cancer Care, women have access to the advanced technology, genetic testing, treatments and clinical trials usually available only in major medical centers.

Sarasota Memorial offers the region’s most comprehensive minimally invasive and robotic surgical procedures to treat women with gynecological cancers and a range of non-cancerous conditions requiring hysterectomy, partial hysterectomy, myomectomy and other laparoscopic surgeries.

Our Cancer Care Services are accredited by the American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer and affiliated with the Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute.
