A combination of advanced diagnostics, the latest treatment options and an integrated – and compassionate – team approach to patient care is what makes the Gynecologic Oncology Program at Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) one of the premier such services in the Chicago area.

Rebecca Brooks, M.D., and S. Diane Yamada, M.D., lead the NCH Gynecologic Oncology Program. Dr. Brooks serves as the program’s Medical Director and is board certified in gynecologic oncology and obstetrics gynecology. Dr. Yamada, also board certified in gynecologic oncology, is an Associate Professor and Section Chief at the University of Chicago Medicine, and an expert in the treatment of ovarian and high-grade endometrial cancers. She has been serving as principal investigator for a multi-institutional clinical trial involving patients with ovarian cancer.

Drs. Brooks and Yamada work with a team of specialists at NCH noted for their evaluation and treatment of cervical, ovarian, endometrial, vaginal and vulvar cancers, as well as benign conditions such as adenomyosis, endometriosis and fibroids. They also have expertise in the treatment of rare gynecologic cancers and offer patients comprehensive risk assessments and prevention programs.
