Norton Cancer Institute specialists work to bring cervical cancer patients the most current treatments while also offering support services for the whole family. Treatment is based on the stage of cancer and medical condition of the patient. Early-stage cervical cancer usually involves surgery (radical hysterectomy with bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy). In more advanced cases, a combination of radiation and chemotherapy is typically used.
As part of our comprehensive care, Norton Cancer Institute also gives patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These studies help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new treatments options.
A list of studies is available by contacting the downtown Louisville Norton Cancer Institute Resource Center at (502) 629-5500.
