11/05/2012

Cancer patients now have another Arizona Oncology location to choose from when seeking gynecological cancer treatment. The practice, part of The US Oncology Network, opened Oct. 29th at 1445 W. Chandler Blvd., suite A5. Patients will get superb care from Snehal Bhoola, MD. In addition to seeing patients at the new location in Chandler, Dr. Bhoola will continue to serve patients at the Arizona Oncology Biltmore Cancer Center in Phoenix.

At the new Chandler practice, Dr. Bhoola will continue to focus on gynecologic oncology. New services in Chandler include access to clinical research trials, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, evidence-based treatment plans, personalized chemotherapy, genetic and molecular tumor profiling, and access to Arizona Oncology nurse navigators. Nurse navigators act as a patient-family advocate by assisting with health care system navigation, one-on-one support, and providing resources for clinical, emotional and financial assistance and other services.

I'm happy to be a part of the Chandler East Valley community,  Dr. Bhoola says.  And this new location allows us to provide more localized care for our patients from East Valley. We remain committed to providing the best, most up-to-date and advanced treatments for our patients.

Patients may be treated for various forms of gynecologic cancer at the new location, including ovarian, uterine, cervical, endometrial, vulvar and vaginal.

Dr. Bhoola has a special interest in complex pelvic and minimally invasive surgeries. He is one of the busiest robotic surgeons in the valley and offers minimally invasive robotic surgery to all patients where it is appropriate.

The Chandler practice is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed Tuesdays.

Dr. Bhoola attended Emory Universitys medical school and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Vanderbilt University. His specialty training in gynecologic oncology was at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. He served as assistant professor at the Mercer University School of Medicine for three years prior to joining Arizona Oncology in 2008.

He is a member of the American College of Surgeons, American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Society of Gynecologic Oncology and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. His specialties include complicated pelvic surgery and minimally invasive surgery, including robotic-assisted procedures. He also has interests in cervical cancer prevention and novel therapies for ovarian cancer. Dr. Bhoola also continues his role in education as an instructor at the Good Samaritan OB/Gyn Residency Program.
