Doctor Category: Gynecologic Oncology
Dr. Frank Cirisano, MD has more than 25 years of experience treating patients with cancer of the ovaries, uterus, and cervix. He is a graduate of Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and completed his formal training at UCLA/Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Duke University Medical Center.
Under his leadership, The Women’s Cancer Care Center uses the latest robotic surgery technology, which is performed on an outpatient basis. With this robotic approach, hysterectomy patients may go home the same day and return to work within one week. They experience reduced risks of bleeding and infection. Cancer screening tests offered at the center include PAP smear with HPV assay, BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic testing, pelvic ultrasound, and pelvic exams. With these screening tools, patients with early cancer detection may benefit from higher cure rates and quicker recovery. This screening and early detection platform has also been scaled to the international needs of developing countries through his outreach foundation, the Women’s Cancer Care Fund, empowering patients around the world to leverage innovations in healthcare.
