Gynecologic Oncology

"I want to serve patients with empathy and support their choices about treatment and their management plan."

- Nirupama

What brought you to gynecologic oncology?

I have always been interested in women's health and focused on this specialty because I enjoy the blend of medicine and surgery. Gynecologic oncology at Fred Hutch is centered on strong education strategies and evidence-based medicine. 

What do you find gratifying about your work?

Managing a wide array of health conditions from childbirth to menopause — and providing continuity of care to patients throughout their lives — has always been rewarding.

Clinical Trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch physicians. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your provider can decide if a study is right for you.

Your Care Team

At Fred Hutch, you receive care from a team of providers with extensive experience in your disease. Your team includes providers, a patient care coordinator, a registered nurse, an advanced practice provider and others, based on your needs. You also have access to experts like registered dieticians, social workers, acupuncturists, psychiatrists and more who specialize in supporting people with cancer or blood disorders.
