Ovarian cancer

Women patients in discussion.

In the UK Markey Cancer Center, the Gynecologic Oncology Team provides patients with care customized to fit their needs. Our program offers the latest in early detection, diagnosis, surgery, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted treatments.

Our team approach

The Gynecologic Oncology Team includes physicians, nurses and researchers from multiple specialties. Patients are seen in a comfortable, supportive environment. Our team works together providing each member’s individual expertise to offer patients personalized treatment plans suited for their needs.

Survival rates

Early detection is an important determinant of survival. If ovarian cancer is found and treated before it spreads beyond the ovary, the five-year survival rate is 92%. For patients treated at the University of Kentucky, ovarian cancer survival is the highest in the state and exceeds national benchmarks. For more information on the ovarian survival rate based on cancer stage, visit the American Cancer Society website.

Clinical trials

Clinical trials help keep our cancer care on the leading edge by allowing researchers to apply cancer knowledge as it develops to give you the best chance of survival.

At Markey, our specialists place a high value on all areas of ovarian cancer treatment, from patient care designed for the unique patient to developing treatments of the future.
