From advancements in the treatment of women’s cancers to the great increase in the number of women in the medical field, women have been the catalyst for dramatic changes in medicine over the past decade. The Winter 2011 issue of “Frontiers” magazine features a compelling look at some of these changes, including the fields of gynecologic oncology and urogynecology, robotic surgery options for women and programs for weight management. Also featured are a local perspective of women in medicine, updates on promising clinical trials and an investigation of women’s health issues conducted at the UT Graduate School of Medicine.
“Frontiers” is a publication for alumni and friends. It is produced by the UT Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine, Knoxville, which form the region’s only academic medical center.
