- Ovarian Cancer
We have gynecologic oncologists as part of the Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute. They provide the most advanced care, including access to treatments that aren’t available elsewhere. For example, we were one of the research sites for intraperitoneal chemotherapy for advanced ovarian cancer. This therapy is shown to extend life an average of 18 months – an astonishing advance in cancer treatment.
At the Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute, you’ll receive superior medical care and will be treated with respect, kindness and compassion. We use a multidisciplinary team approach to ovarian cancer and other gynecologic cancers. That means you will see an entire team of specialists in the same day. Team members will review every aspect of your case and offer the best treatment recommendation – this approach is most effective in aggressively and successfully treating cancer.
You also will be connected to a caring support team that includes financial counselors, social workers, genetic counselors and others who will be present for you throughout your cancer journey. The Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute is a member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, which gives you access to groundbreaking, lifesaving cancer care and breakthrough clinical research right here in the Lehigh Valley. LVHN patients have access to MSK clinical trials. This accelerates the data-collection process so investigational treatments can be approved faster and become available to more patients.
