Memorial Sloan Kettering has long-standing experience providing comprehensive screening, counseling, and treatment for ovarian cancer. Our gynecologic team of doctors, surgeons and other experts sees more than 100 patients with newly diagnosed cases of ovarian cancer each year, as well as some 100 patients with a recurrent form of the disease.
Although each patient has a primary doctor who coordinates her care, all patients — regardless of the type of treatment they receive — are cared for by a multidisciplinary team of experts. The team meets every week to review patient cases and develop treatment plans. They are joined by specialists who ensure that nonmedical needs, such as psychosocial support for patients and their caregivers, are also met.
