About AAMG Gynecologic Specialty Surgeons
Finding out that you have a gynecologic form of cancer — or learning that you’re at high risk for developing one — is scary and overwhelming. AAMG Gynecologic Specialty Surgeons can offer you hope and encouragement for the future. We are impassioned by the courage of our patients and families.
For women who have gone through genetic testing and discovered they are at high risk of developing a hereditary type of gynecologic cancer, we provide a range of preventive surgery options to reduce risk. We also offer fertility sparing treatments — both medical and surgical — for women who have been diagnosed with gynecologic cancer and want to protect their fertility for the future.
Our multi-disciplinary team provides valuable treatment options for women with, or at risk of, gynecologic cancers, including ovarian, cervical and endometrial. We will walk with you each step of your care journey.
We are conveniently located in Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Belcher Pavilion — within The Rebecca Fortney Breast Center — at 2000 Medical Parkway, Suite 200, in Annapolis.
