Gynecologic-oncology clinics are held 4 days per week to provide interprofessional care to women with gynecological cancers. The care team assesses new cases, develops treatment plans, provides follow-up post discharge from inpatient care (after chemotherapy or surgery).
Colposcopy clinics are held 5 days per week. Colposcopy is a medical diagnostic procedure to examine an illuminated, magnified view of the cervix and the tissues of the vagina and vulva. Many premalignant lesions and malignant lesions in these areas have discernible characteristics which can be detected through the examination. It is done using a colposcope, which provides an enlarged view of the areas, allowing the colposcopist to visually distinguish normal from abnormal appearing tissue and take directed biopsies for further pathological examination. The main goal of colposcopy is to prevent cervical cancer by detecting precancerous lesions early and treating them.
Physician referral is necessary for consultation within the division and requests are faxed with physician referral and patient contact information to 514-934-8294. Consultations are carried out in a caring and empathic manner, being aware of the delicate nature of pelvic floor disorders.
