Ovarian Cancer

At Roswell Park, we understand the seriousness and complexity of ovarian cancer. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, surgeons, and radiologists are focused exclusively on the treatment of cancers of the female reproductive system. We know that treating ovarian cancer effectively requires not just one but many approaches, beginning with advanced screening and genetic testing to promote early detection, followed by treatment and cutting-edge research.

A majority of ovarian cancers are not detected until they’ve progressed to the latter stages of disease. Our High Risk Ovarian Cancer Clinic identifies and monitors patients who have an elevated risk of developing cancer and provides preventive measures to potentially stop ovarian cancer before it progresses.

An accurate and comprehensive analysis by a pathologist is critical in determining the best approach to targeted treatment. Our skilled scientists analyze large numbers of specimens and review a high volume of cases. This level of expertise allows them to identify even slight variances, which may distinguish a highly treatable cancer from one that is more aggressive.

You’ll have access to physicians who set the standard for treatment of gynecologic cancers worldwide. Our gynecologic oncologists are panel members for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), which creates guidelines outlining the best ways to treat each of the major cancers.

Pioneering Clinical Trials

Roswell Park strives to find better ways to treat ovarian cancer through clinical trials, many of which have been pioneered and launched by our own translational research team.
