Gynecologic cancers require a specialized physician team because patients can experience a wide range of physical and emotional effects. We offer compassionate expert care, coordinated under the oversight of fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologist David Boruta, MD, with a team of physicians to ensure the best outcomes.
Our team treats all types of gynecologic cancers, including
- Cervical cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Vaginal cancer
- Vulvar cancer
Dr. Boruta works closely with each patient and their family to develop an individualized treatment plan. He will oversee the treatment planning and implementation process while working with other experts throughout the organization. These can include Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, radiation oncology, pathology, and obstetrics and gynecology, including fertility experts.
Treatment options vary depending on a patient’s plan and can range from medical oncology, including chemotherapy, to radiation to surgical and minimally invasive surgical options to remove cancerous growths.
