Ovarian Cancer

Gynecology oncologist meets with patient

Ovarian cancer happens when cells that are not normal grow in or near your ovaries. The ovaries are two small glands located on either side of your uterus. They produce female sex hormones and store and release eggs (ova). Our physicians are trained in the newest protocols and treatment options to develop individual treatment plans for surgery and chemotherapy. To schedule an appointment, call (713) 798-1999.
