In the UAMS Gynecology Cancer Clinic, our doctors provide compassionate support and comprehensive treatment options for all types of gynecologic cancers. Among the types of cancer treated are cancers of the uterus (womb), cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina and external genital area.
As the only teaching hospital in Arkansas, the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute provides state-of-the-art technology and treatment options for you, including both inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures.
Among these options is the robotic da Vinci Surgical System, which makes it possible to prevent hysterectomies for some cervical cancer patients, preserving the woman’s ability to have children.
Our oncology nurses provide support and follow-up for patients receiving both chemotherapy and radiation treatments. UAMS also sponsors and participates in local and national clinical research trials, offering you new and innovative treatments not available anywhere else in the state.

Children at the Cancer Institute
For the health of your child and the safety of our patients, we ask that children age 12 and younger remain on the first floor in the lobby or café.
We realize that this may be a challenge for patients without childcare options. If you must bring your child, please visit the Welcome Desk when you arrive and they will assist you in finding an appropriate and safe place to wait with your child.
