At the AHN Cancer Institute, we take a rigorous and personalized approach to uterine cancer care. You meet with a devoted team of uterine cancer specialists, typically within three days of diagnosis. Your team quickly works to design a treatment plan tailored to your needs. We carefully monitor your progress and your response to the treatment, switching to a different treatment if necessary.
At the AHN Cancer Institute, you can expect:
- Patient-centered care: We meet with you and your family to discuss the details of your treatment plan, so you feel confident and informed. You’ll see the same team of physicians throughout your care. Your doctors get to know you, your family, and your personal preferences. You also have access to our robust support services including support groups and palliative care. These services help you live the best quality of life while you receive treatment.
- Sophisticated treatment: Sometimes, patients with uterine cancer need a hysterectomy, which is the removal of the uterus. Our surgeons use revolutionary robotic surgery, a minimally invasive form of surgery that typically results in a faster, easier recovery.
Access to clinical trials: We participate in many clinical trials, keeping you at the forefront of the latest treatment options.
- A convenient, after hours cancer clinic: AHN opened the first After Hours Oncology Clinic in western Pennsylvania for patients with cancer. If you are experiencing side effects from treatment, call your physician’s office first, then visit our clinic, conveniently located at West Penn Hospital. We treat you quickly without exposing your compromised immune system to germs you may encounter in a traditional emergency room. Plus, our clinic is more affordable than a visit to the ER. And since our oncology specialists have access to your records, they may even be able to advise you over the phone and save you from making a trip.
