Gyn Oncology

The sub-specialty trained, doubly board certified physicians of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology primarily care for women diagnosed with potentially malignant, pre-malignant and malignant gynecologic conditions as well as for those women who require specialized or complicated pelvic surgery or minimally invasive approaches to surgical conditions. Our academic physicians are nationally renowned experts compassionately caring for women with ovarian, uterine, cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and other gynecologic cancers. We use the most advanced surgical techniques and provide the most up-to-date treatments for our patients, including opportunities to receive the newest medications within National Cancer Institute sponsored clinical trials right here in Hawai‘i. We are constantly performing research to learn more about these cancers. Our team of physicians works closely with patient navigators, social work, pain and palliative care, emotional and psychologic support experts, financial resource experts, and other providers in an integrated cancer team approach that always provides the patient the best opportunity for a good experience and best possible result. We also care for patients who do not have a cancer diagnosis but require expert surgical care for complicated conditions such as abnormal pap smears, pelvic masses, endometriosis, or a desire for minimally invasive surgical approaches including robotic surgery-a method that requires tremendous surgical skill and allows patients to go home after a major surgery often in the same day and return to normal life quickly.

The gynecologic oncology division cares for all the women of Hawai‘i and the Pacific. Our work is concentrated at the major centers in Honolulu with local teams to ensure our patients the very best, but we also provide neighbor island outreach and work.
