Why gynecologist & oncologist
A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in treating non-cancerous conditions of female reproductive organs and an oncologist (gynecologic oncologist) is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating cancers related to woman’s reproductive organs. Oncologist with in-depth knowledge of reproductive organs are better in treating gynecological cancers, because they understand women’s biology better than general surgical oncologist.
It is very important to consult with a gynecologic oncologist before your treatment is started so that the best treatment regimen is chosen for you.
A gynecologist with training in oncology are better surgeon’s due to their vast surgical experience in complex cases, hence their surgical skills are superior compared to genral gynecologist to treat complicated non-cancerous condtions such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts and fibroids.
