Health Care Interview

Work with your personal physician and health care providers to keep the lines of communication open and provide the best care possible.•

Adapting to changes

Care of a woman with a suspected or diagnosed gynecologic cancer should be structured like the patient-centered medical home model and be coordinated by a single health care provider (a “team captain”) with multidisciplinary training in the care of women with gynecologic cancer.
• Measurable standards for high quality care for women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer should be determined, validated and tracked. Demonstration projects, registry systems and funding for outcomes-based research are key.
• Several payment systems, including diagnosis-based, episode-of-care reimbursement system in which payment would be based on each diagnostic episode of the woman’s illness rather than on specific procedures, should be developed and tested.

Education requirement

The characteristics necessary for a physician to develop into a successful gynecologic oncologist include an extensive fund of knowledge related to the subspecialties, strong interpersonal skills, and the ability to practice within the complex systems required for management of gynecologic cancer patients, surgical expertise, and the clinical ability to provide comprehensive oncologic care for these women. In order for a trainee to acquire these skills, a gynecologic oncology training program must accept only highly qualified individuals as fellows, have a dedicated core faculty, practice in a supportive environment that has appropriate facilities, and provide adequate clinical material. The gynecologic oncology training program must be organized with an emphasis on education of the fellows. Part of the educational program is formal (lectures, assigned reading, basic skill sets, etc.). Training in clinical and surgical skills is a day-to-day process that occurs during the course of patient care. One requirement of The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) is that the fellow spends 12 months of protected time doing research. Fellows are also required to take 2 courses, one in biostatistics and one in cancer biology. A thesis of publishable quality is also required. All programs must perform ongoing quality assurance and reassessment of potential areas for improvement. ABOG is responsible for the accreditation and ongoing monitoring of the fellowship programs.

Patrick S. Anderson, MD specializes in oncology. An oncologist is a medical doctor who is specifically trained to diagnose and treat cancer. Different types of cancer respond to different treatments, so oncologists must know which treatment is best. Some oncologists specialize in a particular type of cancer. Lung cancerprostate cancerrectal cancerpancreatic cancerbreast cancercervical cancerovarian cancer, and leukemia are examples of various types of cancer.

Patrick Anderson MD is general practitioner and obstetrician & gynecologist licensed to practice medicine in New York and New Jersey. Dr. Anderson specializes in general practice, obstetrics & gynecology, and gynecology oncology and practices medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in 1695 Eastchester Rd Ste L2, Bronx, at Jersey City Medical Center in 120 Irvington Ave, South Orange, and at Bronx Lebanon Ob./Gyn. Group in 1650 Grand Concourse Fl 14, Bronx.

A gynecologic oncologist is a physician/surgeon specializing in treating cancers of the female reproduction system, including ovarian, endometrial, vaginal, cervical and uterine cancer. Gynecologic oncologists are trained as obstetrician/gynecologists (OB-GYNs), and then receive additional training in female reproductive cancer and cancer treatment, including radiation therapy and surgery. These specialists perform biopsies and other surgeries, and are trained to prescribe noninvasive cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation.

Obstetrics and gynecology

has more recently evolved as a primary care specialty for

categorical care for women, including obstetrics and/or gynecological

problems, with female patients going directly to ob–gyn

practitioners without referral.

  • Chemotherapy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Lumpectomy
  • Mastectomy
  • Ovarian Ablation
  • Robotic surgery is particularly well-suited to both of these procedures, thanks to its excellent visualization of the operating field and the fact that it enhances the ability of surgeons to perform the meticulous dissections required in these surgeries.
  • They work with the oncology team and other specialists like ARNPs and PAs to develop and treat women’s cancers. Interaction with others
  • A Board Certified gynecological oncologist, Dr. Anderson completed his obstetrics, gynecological residency and oncology fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and is a graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Medical School.
  • Anderson has received awards and honors from national organizations such as the American Cancer Society and the American Institute of Chemistry and is an active researcher and teacher on a variety of subjects in his areas of expertise. He is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a full member of The Society of Gynecologic Oncologist has co-authored articles that have appeared in prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals such asGynecological Oncology, Journal of Radiation Oncology, Journal of Clinical Oncology and Journal of Women’s Health.

Robotics has changed the landscape of medicine with increasingly streamlined procedures, greater precision and optimal 3D viewing for surgeons and reduced pain and a faster recovery for patients.  The technology, combined with the skillful hand of the surgeon, has raised the standard of care for complex surgeries while affording patients dramatic benefits. The integration of computer-enhanced technology with the surgeon’s skill, robotic surgery enables surgeons to perform precise, minimally invasive surgery in a manner that enhances healing and promotes well-being.

To become a gynecologic oncologist, the candidate must first complete a bachelor’s degree from an accredited school. Many people find it easier to gain admittance to a good medical school with an undergraduate degree in one of the sciences, such as biology, chemistry, or physics. Most students discover it is much simpler to be admitted to medical school when their undergraduate history shows community service or activities in addition to excellent grades.

Before applying to medical school, students are normally required to take and pass medical admission test. These exams test the student’s knowledge in problem solving, science knowledge, as well as written and verbal communication skills. Without a passing score on these exams, the student may be unable to enroll in medical school.

The next step to become a gynecologic oncologist is to complete medical school. During the first two years basic medical subjects are studied, such as anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, and microbiology. The third year focuses on internal medicine, gynecology, and surgery. Electives and choosing a good residency program are both done during the fourth year. Another four years is spent learning, working, and practicing gynecologic medicine within the confines of a medical residency program.

After residency, the final step to become a gynecologic oncologist is to be accepted for and complete a fellowship in gynecologic oncology. These programs last for an additional three years of study, and it can be incredibly difficult to be accepted. During this time, doctors are expected to study an intensive program relating to the female reproductive system as well as the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. Following successful completion of the fellowship, a doctor is considered an expert in her field.

Gynecologic Oncologists are fully trained obstetrician/gynecologists who successfully complete an additional three to four years of intensive training in all aspects of gynecologic cancer care. They understand the pathology and biology of reproductive-tract cancers, and have the expertise to provide comprehensive treatment including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, symptom management and supportive care.
