A Gynaecological Oncologist is a gynaecologist who sub-specialises in treating cancers of the female reproductive system – ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer and vulval cancer. After 6 years of general Obstetrics and Gynaecology training to become a specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, these sub-specialists undertake at least an additional 3 years of training in cancer surgery and management. This includes training in advanced surgical skills in performing both open and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. It involves experience not only in pelvic surgery, but also surgery related to the bowel, urinary tract and the upper abdomen.
Dr Amy Tang is a female Gynaecological Oncologist who has undertaken this extensive and intensive training, with experience attained nationally and internationally. She is a Certified Gynaecological Oncologist of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist (RANZCOG). Dr Amy Tang brings the skills she has obtained locally, nationally and internationally back to her hometown of Brisbane, with the aim of giving her patients the most comprehensive, evidence-based holistic care.
