Fannie E. Rippel Center for Women's Reproductive Cancers / Gynecologic Oncology Program
The dedicated doctors and researchers of the Gynecologic Oncology Program at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey take a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of and research on malignancies of the female reproductive tract. This approach is based on an innovative, continuity-of-care model under which the oncologist who guides patients through the diagnostic process also performs surgery, directs the patient's chemotherapy treatments if any are needed, and stays with the patient through the entire course of her disease. This process allows the gynecologic oncologists in the program to better understand each individual patient's disease. Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey is one of just a few cancer centers nationwide to approach treatment in this manner.
