If you have vulvar cancer, you want the care that will give you the best chance for recovery. Fortunately, you’ll find it right here, close to home. A fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologist is the best type of doctor to treat vulvar cancer. But there are only about 600 of these specialists in the nation. We have gynecologic oncologists at the Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute. They provide you with the most advanced care, including access to treatments that aren’t available elsewhere. You’ll receive superior medical care and practical help for you and your family during treatment and recovery. You will be treated with respect, kindness and compassion.
At Lehigh Valley Health Network, we use a multidisciplinary team approach to vulvar 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.
