Gynecologic Oncology

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers comprehensive specialized care for women with pre-invasive and invasive malignancies involving the uterus, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina or vulva. The Division of Gynecologic Oncology consists of board certified surgeons, dedicated gynecologic oncology nurses and a physician assistant. Attending physicians in our Division have completed four years of an accredited Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and have also completed an additional training in an accredited Fellowship Program in Gynecologic Oncology. The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is an active member of the Vermont Cancer Center and the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), a NCI designated clinical research group.


We are actively involved in medical student and resident education through medical student clerkships from within The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at the University of Vermont as well as outside institutions, and a residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology, respectively.


The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is an active member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group, a nationally recognized cooperative research group which offers new and/or investigational treatment protocols for cancer patients.

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology collaborates with the Department of Pharmacology and the Department of Immunology at the The Larner College of Medicine in the study of angiogenesis and cytokine production in ovarian cancer.

Patient Care

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology offers comprehensive and compassionate care for women. Our services include:

  • Evaluation of invasive gynecologic cancers.
  • Screening examinations for cancer (Pap smears, colposcopy, and endometrial biopsies).
  • Surgical treatment (ranging from minimally invasive surgery such as laparoscopy, to radical cancer surgery).
  • Administration of chemotherapy.

To ensure that our patients receive the best possible care, the Division of Gynecologic Oncology works with other members of the University of Vermont Cancer Center such as Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology, Surgical Oncology, and the Breast Care Center. Outpatient care is also closely followed not only by the attending physician, but also dedicated registered nurses in gynecologic oncology.
