Compassionate care for women with gynecologic malignancy is available at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center, located adjacent to the Marshall Medical Center and Cabell Huntington Hospital. Dr. Bou Zgheib works closely with physicians trained in radiation therapy to coordinate care for women with cervical, endometrial, vaginal or vulvar cancer. Not all women with these cancers will need radiation therapy, but when it is indicated, it is available. In close association with the nursing staff of the Cancer Center, they manage and oversee the treatment program for women with ovarian cancers or advanced cancers at other sites, when chemotherapy is required.
It is an unfortunate fact of life that sometimes cancer treatments are not enough to control cancers, and that some women will die of their disease. Dr. Bou Zgheib is well-versed and experienced in pain management, symptom management, palliative care and end of life issues. They work closely with Hospice Agencies from a number of counties to assist patients in maintaining their quality of life.
