The UCLA Division of Gynecologic Oncology provides individualized care in a supportive environment with the latest technological advances. We care for women with gynecologic cancer and those at high risk for gynecologic cancer based on family history. At UCLA we treat:
We understand that each woman has unique medical and emotional needs.
In order to best address these needs, we work closely with highly qualified experts who specialize in a variety of medical fields. Patients undergo treatments with our multidisciplinary team including gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, genetic counselors, nurses, clinical trials specialists and other supportive services. We work together to evaluate each patient’s situation and to customize a treatment plan that is in the best interest of each individual patient.
In addition to our main location in Westwood, we have outreach clinics in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Westlake to better serve patients in our community.
Genetic Testing Opens Door to Greater Awareness of Potential Cancer Risk
As our understanding of the relationship between genetics and cancer increases, UCLA Health has expanded efforts to identify patients who could benefit from genetic screening specific for cancer risk, and to make testing and counseling services more broadly available. Beth Karlan, MD, vice chair of women’s health research in the UCLA Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and director of cancer population genetics at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, explains that patients who might benefit from cancer genetic tests include many cancer survivors, patients newly diagnosed with certain cancers and those whose ancestry places them at higher risk for carrying mutations in genes related to cancer susceptibility.
