The gynaecological oncology surgical team at The Christie provides advanced surgery for all gynaecological cancers including cervical, endometrial, ovarian, vaginal and vulval cancers, in close conjunction with the non-surgical cancer treatments carried out at The Christie.
The team often provide surgery to patients with advanced gynaecological cancers that are not considered operable elsewhere. In addition, there are commonly connections with the other surgical services at The Christie to provide the complete package for a patient who may require bowel or bladder operations at the same time as their gynaecological procedures.
There is also a close connection with the plastic surgery department to allow reconstructions to be performed at the same time. Patients are referred locally, regionally, nationally and internationally for treatment here at The Christie.
The Christie also has accredited training centre status for robotic surgery in gynaecology. This means that The Christie helps to train other consultants across the UK to be able to use the robotic technology. You can read more about this on our robotic training centre accreditation page.
