Gynecologic Cancer Care in the Northern Suburbs

A diagnosis of cancer can be an overwhelming experience and one that affects your entire family. Finding the right treatment options — and the right team — are crucial to fighting the disease and returning to an active life.

At Lake Forest Hospital, we meet every cancer diagnosis with the most advanced treatment options, led by a talented team.

Our experts use state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive services to treat a wide range of cancers, including gynecologic and breast cancer.

Your dedicated cancer care team includes board-certified medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists; nurses specifically trained and certified in the care of oncology patients; physical therapists, nutritionists and oncology social workers to provide psycho-social support.

They all reach beyond their individual specialties and work together as a total support team, meeting weekly to discuss your ongoing progress and including you and your family as partners in decision-making and treatment.

At Lake Forest Hospital, we coordinate an integrated approach for both inpatients and outpatients, including diagnostic testing, comprehensive treatment, disease management, if needed, and long-term follow-up. This ensures that every effort is made to eradicate the cancer, improve survival rates, improve function and manage or slow the disease’s progression.

While treating the physical impact of cancer takes top priority, we also place the utmost importance on meeting your emotional and spiritual needs. That’s why Lake Forest Hospital offers a wide range of support services for patients facing cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

In addition, some of our medical oncologists participate in clinical trials — which offer you access to the latest protocols and options available for treatment.
