Why choose Cabrini for your care

We offer a very specialised field of cancer care in the area of gynaecological oncology (gynae-oncology). Gynae-oncological cancers affect women’s reproductive organs including endometrial, cervical, ovarian and uterine cancers; and all cancers affecting the fallopian tubes, vagina and the vulva.

At Cabrini you will have access to the knowledge and expertise of leading surgeons, specialist nurses, medical and radiation oncologists. We also offer a wide range of support services important in the treatment and management of your health including dietitians, physiotherapists and rehabilitation experts. We regularly review treatment plans with all members of our team to ensure we offer a coordinated care to best suit each individual’s needs.

If you choose to be treated at Cabrini you will have rapid access to clinical experts and diagnostic services. We aim to see new patients within a week of diagnosis or referral. Medical imaging can usually be done the following day, and biopsies within three to five days. Following the initial assessment we provide fast referrals to our sub-specialty colleagues to allow appropriate treatment to start as soon as possible.

Our gynae-oncology specialists are at the forefront of the latest screening, diagnostics and advancements in surgical techniques such as robotic surgery. Our team is also actively involved in the latest clinical trials and committed to putting emerging treatments into practice.
