With uterine or endometrial cancer, your physician may recommend one of several courses of treatment. The mainstay of uterine cancer treatment is surgical removal of the uterus and cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries, and pelvic and regional lymph node sampling. Surgery can be done by NorthShore University HealthSystem's nationally recognized surgeons either through a traditional incision or through minimally invasive surgery, which involves small keyhole incisions and an advanced technology approach performed . When the cancer is still in its earliest stages, a hysterectomy, the removal of the uterus, may be the best treatment. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy may also be recommended. In some cases, hormone therapy may be a course of uterine cancer treatment.
NorthShore’s team of gynecologic oncologists manages and oversees each patient’s care from diagnosis through treatment, including surgical and chemotherapeutic aspects of management, as well as coordinating with other specialists as needed.
