  • he strength of The Women's Health Program at Winthrop and its quality care for women have long been based on the collaboration among the specialists in women's healthcare and colleagues in related specialties. Winthrop's panel of experts on women's health problems has been enhanced with the addition of Eva Chalas, MD, the Hospital's newly-appointed Director, Gynecologic Oncology. Dr. Chalas' special training and experience in gynecologic malignancies broaden and empower the comprehensive testing, diagnostics, surgical services, and treatment therapies for women already in place at Winthrop.

    Female oncology patients with metastatic disease can have the totality of their diagnostic, surgical, and follow-up therapies at Winthrop, eliminating the need to travel outside the community.

    Services and procedures at Winthrop include colposcopy (examination of the vagina and cervix with an endoscope), biopsies, sonograms, CT Scans, MRI testing, radiation oncology, and chemotherapy. Advanced laparoscopic and, if necessary, radical surgery, including bowel and bladder procedures, are also provided by Winthrop's team of experts, along with coordinated multi-specialty therapy for the aggressive treatment of gynecologic malignancies.

    "A woman most needs her support system when she is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness," says Dr. Chalas. "One of the greatest values of Winthrop's development of the Gynecologic Oncology specialty is the provision of expert diagnostics and superior care right in the patients' own communities. Travel can be avoided at a time when a woman is most vulnerable, most in need of her own familiar environment, and in need of the proximity of loved ones." Teamed with gynecologic oncologists Michael Pearl, MD and Fidel Valea, MD, Dr. Chalas and her associates join the Winthrop women's services team to provide seven day a week coverage, diagnosing and treating even the most aggressive and metastatic forms of gynecologic cancer.
