The numbers are staggering with more than 2,000 women in Georgia diagnosed with gynecological cancers of the reproductive tract each year.

At St. Joseph’s/Candler Gynecologic Oncology & Surgical Specialists, you can trust our physicians offer the latest treatment options for gynecologic cancer including the minimally-invasive da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. Lead by Director Dr. Edward Richards, along with Dr. Sarah Gill, our physicians are board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology as well as gynecologic oncology and advanced pelvic surgery. 

Gynecologic oncology is the specialized field of medicine that treats cancers that develop in a woman’s reproductive tract. Our physicians are highly trained in minimally-invasive surgical techniques that reduce cancerous tumors as much as possible leaving patients in less pain and requiring shorter hospital stays than open surgeries so patients are then able to move more quickly to the next phase of treatment, if necessary. Dr. Richards and Dr. Gill also assist with chemotherapy and treatment planning. 

Some of the gynecological cancers that we treat include:

  • Cervical
  • Endometrial
  • Ovarian
  • Peritoneal
  • Tubal
  • Vaginal
  • Vulvar
