Uterine Cancer Surgery

What is Uterine Cancer Surgery?

Surgery is the main treatment for uterine cancer but it may be done in combination with other cancer treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy and hormone therapy. Surgery can include a total hysterectomy, which is a removal of the uterus. It also may include a radical hysterectomy, which is removal of the uterus, cervix and upper vagina.

At the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network, we have surgeons who specialize in the treatment of uterine cancer and other cancers of the female reproductive system.
