Division of Gynecologic Oncology
The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is staffed by healthcare providers both experienced and passionate in the field of Gynecologic Oncology. Led by Dr. Setsuko Chambers, Dr. Janiel Cragun, and Dr. Marina Miller join her to ensure that this division works every day to ensure that our patients are receiving the best healthcare services possible. Whether it be through proven drug treatment plans or groundbreaking clinical trials, our physicians do everything in their power to help their patients. We specialize in ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancer clinical trials, focusing on those trials that we believe have the best chance of changing our patient’s lives for the better. We include treatment trials, as well as imaging and biomarker trials. We are interested in opening supportive care trials in the future. We are supported by terrific clinical and research staff, who are equally passionate about their work.
