About Gynecologic Oncologists
Each of the Perlmutter Cancer Center's gynecologic oncologists is dually board-certified to treat cancers arising in the female reproductive tract. Our physicians have completed:
- 3 to 4 years of intensive clinical training in obstetrics and gynecology and rigorous board certification exams administered by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology
- 3 to 4 additional years of specialized intensive fellowship training and practice treating gynecologic cancers, and two additional certification examinations administered by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology
As the teaching team for the NYU School of Medicine, our gynecological oncologists train the next generation of physicians, including medical students, residents, oncology fellows, and other healthcare providers. On a daily basis, Perlmutter Cancer Center physicians are challenged to critically examine what they know and how they can best treat gynecological cancers.
Training, teaching, and practice place the Perlmutter Cancer Center's gynecologic oncologists among the most knowledgeable experts in the field performing specialized surgery, directing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and offering patients the greatest continuity of care.
NYU gynecologic oncologists complete a recertification process every ten years to maintain their board-certified status.
As part of a larger academic medical center, our gynecologic oncologists can refer patients to experts from other medical disciplines to treat health complications or side effects that may arise from cancer or its treatment.
Gynecologic oncologists are fortunate to work with NYU's highly skilled, Magnet-certified nursing team. Oncology nurses play a pivotal role in each woman's care, educating and helping each patient manage her symptoms and her unique health and emotional needs.
