Gynecologic Oncology

Welcome to Gynecologic Oncology Associates

For more than 25 years, Gynecologic Oncology Associates (GOA) has cared for more women with female cancers on a yearly basis than any other practice in Orange County. We are the leaders in Southern California for treating all gynecologic cancers, in one intimate and inclusive setting.

No other group provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for gynecologic cancer —and access to clinical trials— all within the same practice. That means better continuity of care, state-of the art treatment including the latest robotic and advanced endoscopic surgical techniques, and more convenience for patients at a vulnerable time in their lives. We even usher you toward a better quality of life for follow-up and rehabilitative care after treatment is finished.
