Ovarian Cancer: Treatment

The treatment for ovarian cancer is complex and often requires a number of different treatment modalities including surgery and chemotherapy. The primary treatment of ovarian cancer is described below as well as adjuvant therapies. After initial treatment, women often require surveillance and we have developed specialized surveillance programs for women with gynecologic malignancies. If ovarian cancer recurs there are now a number of different treatment options as well as therapies that are targeted to individual cancers (precision medicine).
