Gynecologic Oncology Overview
What We Do
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology provides exceptional care to women facing gynecologic cancers, including ovarian and endometrial cancer as well as cancers of the fallopian tube, cervix, vagina, vulva, primary peritoneal cancer and gestational trophoblastic disease.

We offer a comprehensive range of services including:
- Gynecologic Cancer surgery
- Minimally invasive and robotic surgical approaches

Our mission is to achieve excellence in patient care while advancing the field of gynecologic oncology through research and education.
Research is vital to our division’s academic mission and includes basic as well as clinical studies.
Our faculty have NIH and extramural funding for research and collaborate with UT Southwestern’s Ida and Cecil Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences, and the Hamon Center for Experimental Therapeutics.
As a member institution of the national NRG Oncology organization, we also actively participate in National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical protocols.
We are committed to capitalizing on our expertise to mentor and teach UT Southwestern’s medical students, residents, and fellows. Division faculty provide core lectures and clinical teaching to medical students and residents in obstetrics and gynecology.
We serve as teaching faculty for the department’s Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship Program, which offers excellent training and professional development.
