Kelly Molpus of Ponce Inlet spent six summers working as a lifeguard, moved out of state for a while, and is now a physician working at Halifax Health Medical Center."After I did this for the first time last year, I knew I'd be back every year," he said.He's not alone.

Halifax Community Health System has the only gynecologic oncologist in the Volusia/Flagler areaâ€"Kelly Molpus, MD. For women needing treatment for malignancies in the reproductive tract, the addition of this rare specialty is good news.In fact, the benefits of being treated by a gynecologic oncologist versus a non-specialist are significant."For ovarian cancer, specialists understand that women have a better prognosis if a majority of the cancer is aggressively removed during the original surgery, and we take extra steps to remove as much as possible," said Dr. Molpus."In other cancers, like colon or pancreas, aggressive removal of the tumor does not usually have the same benefit."A graduate of the University of South Florida College of Medicine, Dr. Molpus performed his residency at Vanderbilt University and completed a specialized fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital.Through years of intensive training, Dr. Molpus learned to perform aggressive, targeted surgeries as well as to administer appropriate chemotherapy."Because of the design of our specialty, we are able to provide continuity of care from surgery through remission," said Dr. Molpus."We are able to build strong bonds with our patients and their families, which makes a big difference."Dr. Molpus and his team will use the most advanced treatments and latest technology to treat patients at Halifax.For instance, the da Vinci® S Surgical System, a robotic surgery platform, allows more direct control for procedures such as hysterectomies and lymph node dissections during pelvic surgery."The da Vinci offers the benefits of a minimally invasive procedure, which means potentially less pain, less blood loss and a faster recovery time,' said Dr. Molpus.In a recent survey, 58 percent of American women were unaware of basic risk factors for gynecologic cancers, including obesityâ€"the number-one risk factor for uterine cancer.Women who are 50 or more pounds overweight increase their chances of developing uterine cancer by ten-fold.For cervical cancer, the main risk factors are smoking and the human papillomavirus (HPV).To lower your risk, Dr. Molpus advises consistent annual pelvic exams and Pap smear tests, which can dramatically reduce cervical cancer incidence and deaths.

Prognosis and treatment are the same as for the more common ovarian cancer, according to Dr. Kelly Molpus, the area's first gynecologic oncologist at Halifax Medical Center. The cause of this malignancy is the subject of continuing research, Molpus said.And, he cautioned, diagnosis is not as simple as getting a regular CA-125 blood test.
