Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.

post op for tumor removal, surgery site tore open twice in two weeks. Nightmare. Was sewn up like a cartoon. Suffered nerve damage. One year later, had to have mesh implanted, with a different surgeon and different hospital, to repair damage. This surgeon came into the waiting room at the hospital and told my husband follwing my last surgery, that he had to repair 3 layers of torn muscle, only to find 'a hole' above my intestines that 'looked as though the other surgeon (del Carmen) never even tried to close." Urgh.
Dr. del Carmen is an exceptional caregiver and surgeon. She is highly skilled, personable, and caring. Her reasons for becoming a doctor include taking care of people. If only ALL doctors felt that way... I highly recommend this doctor to any woman in search of a gynecologic surgeon. She is among the best in the country if not the world.
Marcela saved my life. It is as simple as that. She is a warm, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor who is confident and able to put the patient at ease from the very first appointment. She is thorough and willing to go beyond her call of duty. She operated on me on a Sat. morning before she left on vacation. She didn't want me to wait another day. My ovarion cancer was in an early stage so she was aggressive and successful. I am cancer free 2 1/2 yrs. later and can thank Marcela for that, and I do, every day.
Dr. Del Carmen is great doctor. She is warm and you really feel that she would do whatever it takes to get you healthy again. I needed surgery, and she explained everything ahead of time and why it was needed. I felt that she had my best interest in mind and made suggestions that other surgeons hadn't. I felt she was very confident and competent at what she does on top of having a nice bedside manner.
