Louisville’s Leader in Uterine Cancer Care
Norton Cancer Institute is the leading provider of uterine 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 uterine 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 Uterine 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.
Surgery is typically a part of uterine cancer treatment and could include hysterectomy. We also may perform a bilateral oophorectomy — removal of both ovaries. We usually remove lymph nodes near the tumor as well. We often use hormonal therapy, radiation or chemotherapy to reduce the risk of the uterine cancer returning.
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.
