Sara NasserCharite Comprehensive Cancer Center Berlin/Germany

IGCS Member Since 2017

I pursued a career in gynecologic oncology because this field makes all the time I spend at work and all the early mornings worthwhile. Gynecologic Oncology brings together the routine of clinics and ward rounds with the challenges and excitement of surgery. It is a specialty that combines the roles of physician and surgeon, and at times allows an intimate glance into inspiring human journeys.

I trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the UK, and I am currently a Gynecologic Oncology fellow in Germany. I come from a multicultural background (Italo-Lebanese) and have always had a keen interest in strengthening international dialogue within the medical field. Consequently, I co-founded the Pan-Arabian Research Society of Gynecologic Oncology, a society aimed to improve the standards of care of women with gynaecological cancers in the Arab world through education and research projects.

I decided to pursue a career in gynecologic oncology because it is rewarding. In contrast to the prevailing perception, I find the mechanics of the female reproductive system more interesting than other parts of the body. The sub-specialty of gynecologic oncology is incredibly gratifying and challenging. The science of oncology is undergoing a major paradigm shift. In my clinic, I supervise several women's cancer projects. Currently, our main project devoted to improvement the protocols of fist and second prevention of cervical cancer based on HPV vaccination.

IGCS Member Since 2011

I was interested in oncology from the early days of my undergraduate medical training and surgery was also my passion.  Gynecologic oncology is a wonderful combination of both of these so it was a perfect choice for me. I am currently working in a teaching hospital in Kerala, India. In this region, we specialize in uterine and ovarian cancer as it is more common here rather than cervical cancer which is prevalent in other parts of India.  My special interest is minimally invasive surgery for cancer treatment.  Offering quality surgery with the least invasion is my goal.  I also spend my time on several special projects. At the moment, I am involved in projects pertaining to sentinel node mapping for endometrial cancers.  I am also involved creating cancer awareness and encouraging HPV vaccination in my community as we do not have an organised cancer screening program in our country.       

I received the IGCS Travelling Scholar award in 2012 to visit the Gynecologic Oncology division at Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, headed by Dr Walter H. Gotlieb. There I learned firsthand about the applications of robotic surgery in gynecologic oncology. This training was very useful when I started the robotic program at my institution in 2015. Now I have done more than 335 robotic procedures for gynecologic cancer. Thanks to my training, I could complete all of them roboticaly without conversion to open. I thank IGCS for giving me a chance to learn robotics.

 IGCS Member since 2015

I chose to pursue a career in gynecologic cancer because the specialty poses challenge to a doctor's knowledge, skills and attitude and I would like to take up this challenge. My day to day activities include clinical management, teaching and research about obstetrics and gynecology including gynecological oncology.
