Specialized Surgery Gives Angela the Gift of Motherhood After Cervical Cancer

After four years of marriage, Angela and her husband decided they were ready to start a family. During an appointment with her Ob/Gyn, however, Angela discovered that her pap smear test results were abnormal. Further tests confirmed her fears that she would have to put off getting pregnant due to cervical cancer.

Angela, crushed at the thought of never living her dream of motherhood, met with David P.Warshall, MD, Head of Gynecological Oncology at Cooper, who shared with her the option of a surgical procedure which could remove the cancer, but preserve her ability to have a child. Angela soon underwent the procedure, known as a radical trachelectomy. Six years later, she is cancer free and enjoying the joy of motherhood thanks to her beautiful, two-year-old daughter.
