Ovarian Cancer

Louisville’s Leader in Ovarian Cancer Care

Norton Cancer Institute is the leading provider of ovarian cancer care in Louisville and Southern Indiana. Our gynecologic cancer specialists 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 ovarian 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 Ovarian 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. We can provide a unique treatment designed specifically to combat the genetic makeup of your cancer.

We typically treat ovarian cancer with a hysterectomy and removal of the ovaries, cervix and fallopian tubes. We usually follow ovarian cancer surgery with chemotherapy.

In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, we offer you 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.
