Excellence in Gynecologic Oncology Care
Nationally ranked gynecologic care
Your gynecologic cancer care team at Rush may include gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, genetic counselors and fertility specialists — who all specialize in gynecologic cancers. You will also have access to supportive services, such as psychosocial support, nutritional counseling and acupuncture, through Rush’s Cancer Integrative Medicine Program.
Expertise in advanced-stage and recurrent cancers
The gynecologic cancer program at Rush partners with Tempus — a biotechnology company that collects, stores and analyzes genetic data, clinical information and tissue samples. When appropriate, this testing can find that additional treatment options, such as immunotherapies, may be an option for women who have advanced-staged or recurrent gynecologic cancers.
