The gynecologic oncology team at the Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center Warrenville and the Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center Delnor specializes in treating women with gynecologic cancer. We provide access to state-of-the-art treatment options and advanced surgical techniques — including minimally invasive and the latest da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery, intraperitoneal chemotherapy and clinical trials. Your care is provided in a welcoming and compassionate environment where a team of specialists work together to develop and deliver the very best care for you.
In addition to two fellowship-trained gynecologic oncologists, the team includes advanced practice providers and nurses with specialized training in gynecologic oncology and a comprehensive support team devoted to treating female cancers. While our physicians perform surgery and manage your chemotherapy, the gynecologic oncology team also collaborates with radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, palliative medicine physicians, specialized pathologists, genetic counselors and other providers who have special expertise in treating gynecologic cancers.
Our highly skilled team* includes:
*In the spirit of keeping you well-informed, some of the physician(s) and/or individual(s) identified, are neither agents nor employees of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare or any of its affiliates. They have selected our facilities as places where they want to treat and care for their private patients.
Our capabilities cover all stages and types of gynecologic cancers, including:
Each new cancer case is reviewed in our Multidisciplinary Gynecologic Oncology Tumor Board and a personalized care plan will be developed for you.
To us, one of the most important goals is to reduce anxiety and stress associated with cancer treatment and to support your overall well-being. Each patient will meet with a specialized advanced practice nurse or physician assistant who will help guide you and your family through diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.
This provider works closely with your doctors to coordinate your care, answer questions and connect you to beneficial support services. Throughout your care, this team member will be your advocate by providing emotional support and education about your diagnosis and care plan, from diagnosis to survivorship.
Regular visits to your gynecologist or primary care provider can help identify early signs of gynecologic cancer. During a pelvic exam, your doctor will look for masses and irregularities on the cervix, uterus, ovaries, vagina and vulva. A Pap test will check for the presence of cancer cells on the cervix.
If cancer is suspected, your doctor may order the following diagnostic imaging tests and refer you to our team for a consultation/opinion on management options:
Northwestern Medicine offers advanced technology coupled with compassionate care designed just for women. Your gynecologic cancer treatment will depend on your overall health, extent of the disease and your tolerance for various therapies. Treatment options may include:
Find out if there is a clinical trial for your type of gynecologic cancer currently enrolling patients through Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital or Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital. Your doctor and our research team can tell you if you are eligible and answer any questions you may have. See the cancer clinical trials list.

Certain kinds of cancer run in families and are related to an inherited genetic abnormality. If you or your family members have had cancer before age 50 or two or more incidences of different types of cancer, or if you have had several family members diagnosed with cancer, you may want to consider genetic services. Our team can help you determine if you might be at risk and if genetic testing would be appropriate for you.
If you have family members who have had colorectal or endometrial cancer, learn more about Lynch syndrome testing. If you have family members with breast or ovarian cancer, you may be interested in BRCA mutation testing. This is just to mention a few inherited conditions that can increase a woman’s risk for developing various types of cancer.
Our Gynecologic Oncologists offer consultations and follow up for women with a genetic mutation that increases their lifetime risk for developing gynecologic cancer. Our team manages gynecologic cancer screening and surveillance and offers risk-reducing surgery if indicated.
