Read about one woman's remarkable experience…
MedStar Washington Hospital Center is a trusted source for comprehensive cancer care. From diagnosis through treatment and recovery, we offer patients every benefit of advanced medical technology coupled with experienced professionals capable of delivering the best possible outcomes. Our physicians specialize in cutting-edge surgical techniques, including "robotic surgery" and other minimally invasive procedures that are changing the way patients experience and recover from surgery. Using such methods, patients have less pain, quicker recovery times and earlier hospital discharge than with traditional surgeries.

We also provide state-of-the-art options for chemotherapy, including intravenous, intra-abdominal and intra-peritoneal treatments. And as active members of the prestigious Gynecologic Oncology Group, a non-profit, National Cancer Institute-sponsored organization, our patients have access to innovative clinical trials, many of which ultimately define the "standard of care" in gynecologic oncology.
Our ongoing commitment to cancer research and improved outcomes is a benefit to our patients, who are often involved in therapeutic or investigational protocols sponsored through the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health or pharmaceutical industry.
We invite you to partner with our experts to experience an extraordinary quality of cancer care.
