Division of Gynecologic Oncology

UCSD is the only cancer facility in San Diego designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center. In fact, only 41 centers nationwide have earned this distinction.The faculty of Gynecologic Oncology provides care for women with cancer of the reproductive tract and conducts research in order to improve methods of diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic cancer.

As San Diego's only medical institution affiliated with the Gynecologic Oncology Group, we offer patients an opportunity to participate in National Institutes of Health-supported clinical trials of new therapies not available elsewhere in San Diego. Our patients also have access to innovative industry-sponsored trials.

The Gynecologic Cancer Unit within the Moores UCSD Cancer Center provides the latest diagnostic tests and state-of-the-art treatment for malignancies involving the female reproductive organs. These malignancies include:

Cervical Cancer

Endometrial Cancer

Fallopian Tube Cancer

Gestational Trophoblastic Disease

Ovarian Cancer

Uterine Sarcoma

Vaginal Cancer

Vulvar Cancer

Our team, including gynecologic oncologists and radiation oncologists, meets regularly to review all cases, examining treatment options and developing coordinated management plans. Appointments are available through referral by your primary care physician.
