Pacific Gynecology Specialists (PGS) is an elite, experienced subspecialty group dedicated and equipped to offer complete gynecologic oncology and complex benign gynecology services to patients in the Pacific Northwest.
Surgical procedures are performed at Swedish Medical Center, Valley Medical Center, Highline Medical Center, Northwest Hospital, Overlake Hospital, Evergreen Hospital, and Group Health. In addition, PGS has a procedure room in the Seattle office that allows patients to have simple outpatient procedures performed under local anesthesia in a quieter office setting. The Seattle office also has a fully equipped lab and a state of the art ultrasound machine.
For patients with gynecologic malignancies who require chemotherapy, PGS has an infusion suite staffed by four oncology nurses to provide chemotherapy to patients in the Seattle office. The providers are also affiliated with the Swedish Cancer Institute (SCI), and patients can receive chemotherapy at the SCI infusion center under the direction of a PGS provider or a medical oncologist affiliated with SCI. SCI also has an excellent radiation oncology division which works closely with PGS physicians to offer radiation treatment when necessary. In addition, the providers work closely with medical and radiation oncologists in the surrounding area, allowing patients to receive chemotherapy or radiation therapy closer to home.
The providers at PGS actively participate in and offer patients enrollment in research studies from the Gynecology Oncology Group, Puget Sound Oncology Consortium, Pacific Ovarian Cancer Research Consortium SPORE program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and various investigator/industry initiated trials.
