Cervical Cancer

Louisville’s Leader in Cervical Cancer Care

Norton Cancer Institute is the leading provider of cervical cancer care in Louisville and Southern Indiana. Our gynecologic cancer specialists are experts at treating cervical cancer. They are board-certified and fellowship-trained leaders in their field. They’re at the forefront of developing innovative approaches to getting patients back to living their lives.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cervical cancer, you want to start getting better right away. That’s why we offer same-day appointments for newly diagnosed patients.

At Norton Cancer Institute, you’ll have a one-on-one relationship with your oncologist, surgeon, radiation oncologist or other specialist. The next cancer doctor you see will be either someone you know or someone you’ll be seeing again who knows your case.

Innovative Cervical Cancer Care Tailored for You

Our advanced testing options will help your specialist determine a care plan and tailor it for you based on the stage of your tumor and your treatment goals. Your comprehensive care team of physicians and other health-care providers meets regularly to review your case and plan the next steps.

Our state-of-the-art treatments include immunotherapy and biologic therapies that can provide a unique treatment designed specifically to combat the genetic makeup of your cancer.

Hysterectomy is typically a part of cervical cancer treatment. We usually remove lymph nodes near the tumor as well. We often use a combination of radiation and chemotherapy in more advanced cases.

In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, we offer our patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.
