Gynecologic Oncology - What You Can Expect from Us

A coordinated approach to comprehensive patient care


In the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, all of the women we treat receive comprehensive, compassionate care in an environment dedicated to helping you manage the physical and emotional challenges associated with gynecologic cancer.

You will receive personalized care from our gynecologic oncologists, who work together with a pathologist and radiation oncologist who have special expertise in gynecologic oncology. You will also receive support from a social worker dedicated to gynecologic oncology and access to BIDMC's extensive network of cancer support resources.

Exceptional Nursing Care

Gynecologic Oncology at BIDMC is further defined by an exceptional staff of nurses dedicated to caring for gynecologic cancer patients. Consistently ranked among the top five percent of gynecologic nurses nationwide for patient satisfaction, our nurses are distinguished by astute clinical skills and a professional respect for the profoundly personal needs of women in their care.

Excellent Communication and Follow-up

The clinicians and administrators in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology realize that exceptional patient care must be coordinated and delivered on a continuum of care that starts with the referring physician. In addition to prompt responses to referral and consultation requests, referring physicians receive copies of all medical notes, diagnostic tests and treatment reports. Referring physicians are able to resume and manage the care of their patients confident that that they have been included in and informed about each patient's course of care at BIDMC.
