Why Choose South Texas Gynecologic Oncology?
Active in robotic surgery since 2007, Dr. Wilder uses this method for most gynecological procedures. In addition, he also has mastered the more advanced surgical procedures such as radical hysterectomies, cancer staging lymph node procedures, ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancer staging procedures, and complex benign gynecological surgeries on patients who would have normally required an open abdominal procedure. This results in smaller incisions, few complications, and quicker recovery.
What is a gynecologic oncologist?
A gynecologic oncologist is a medical doctor who receives an additional three to four years of training after completing a four year residency in obstetrics and gynecology. During this training, he or she acquires highly specialized expertise to stage, diagnose and treat all types of gynecologic cancer.
A gynecologic oncologist is trained to perform surgical procedures to remove as much cancer as possible, while sparing healthy tissue. These procedures often involve nearby organs and may include: colon resection, splenectomy and removal of tumors from the diaphragm.
In addition to learning these specialized surgical techniques, a gynecologic oncologist is trained to provide chemotherapy and comprehensive oncology care to a woman throughout the course of cancer treatment.
