Gynecologic Oncology is dedicated to the treatment of women with cancers arising from the female reproductive organs. This discipline may combine surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, as well as other emerging therapeutic modalities. The gynecologic oncology team at Harrington Cancer Center, led by Thahir Farzan, M.D., provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art care.
Services provided include full surgical consultation and management. The team also plans, administers and manages the side effects of chemotherapy and cooperates with the Radiation Therapy Department in the planning and management of radiotherapy for gynecologic cancer patients. Patients are given the opportunity to participate in clinical trials of innovative cancer therapies sponsored by National Cancer Institute supported groups, as well as trials initiated by local investigators and the pharmaceutical industry.
