Women treated for gynecologic cancer at Barnes-Jewish Hospital have access to a team of specialists including gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, oncology nurses, an oncology social worker, and a dietitian. A variety of excellent services are available to support women and their families, beginning with assistance in the initial decision-making process and continuing beyond treatment to include long-term care and follow-up. A support group, Together, specifically designed for women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer and their families meets monthly at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The Hereditary Cancer Risk Assessment Service within the Division of Gynecologic Oncology was developed to serve families who want current information regarding the inheritance of cancer, availability of genetic testing for cancer predisposition, and individualized cancer risk assessment, as it relates to their family history of cancer.
