T

wo leading experts in the treatment


of female reproductive cancers have
joined the network of Saint Peters
Physician Associates. Marie Welshinger,
MD, and Michael Worley, Jr., MD, care
for patients on Easton Avenue, down
the road from Saint Peters University
Hospital in New Brunswick.
A former clinical and research fellow
at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer
Center in Manhattan, and formerly
chief of gynecologic oncology at New
York Hospital, Queens, Dr. Welshinger
is board certied in obstetrics and
gynecology and gynecologic oncology.
Dr. Worley completed a fellowship
at Brigham and Womens Hospital in
Massachusetts. Widely published in his
eld, he has lectured at Harvard Medical
School.
Dr. Marie Welshinger and Dr. Michael
Worley are important additions to Saint
Peters Physician Associates, says
Anthony Passannante, chief medical
ofcer, Saint Peters Healthcare System
and president, Saint Peters Physician
Associates. Not only do they allow us to
continue to provide high quality surgical
oncology services to our GYN patients,
they enable us to expand
those services to include
robotically and minimally
invasive laparoscopic
surgery. They are a welcome
addition to our growing
multispecialty enterprise.
Drs. Worley and Welshinger are part of
the womens health team that practices
at 78 Easton Avenue, one of the more than
20 locations in the community where
Saint Peters Physician Associates care for
patients. Thomas Magliaro, M.D., provides
specialized gynecologic care, including
screening for pre-cancerous gynecological
conditions and surgery for benign
gynecologic conditions, at the same
practice.
Gynecologic cancers affect a womans
reproductive organs the cervix, fallopian
tubes, uterus, ovaries, vagina, and vulva.
The following cancers are treated by both
doctors:
Ovarian Cervical Uterine
Vaginal Vulvar
Like other gynecologic oncologists, Drs.
Welshinger and Worley rst trained as
obstetricians and gynecologists and then
trained several more years in the diagnosis
and treatment of female reproductive
cancers. In addition to being trained to
perform surgery on the reproductive
organs, they are trained to perform surgery
on the other organs of the pelvis and
abdominal area that can be affected by
diseases such as ovarian cancer.
Drs. Welshinger and Worley perform much
of their procedures using minimally invasive
techniques, a more common surgical
option today than traditional surgery which
call for large incisions. Both use the
da Vinci

System, which is available at


Saint Peters. The da Vinci technology
makes it possible for surgeons to perform
complex and delicate robotically-assisted
procedures through small incisions 1
to 2 centimeters. Surgeons control the
robots extensions, which function as
surgical arms, from a control station. For
the patient, benets of robotically-assisted
surgery may include signicantly less pain;
less blood loss; less scarring; shorter
recovery time; and a quicker return to
normal daily activities.
Drs. Welshinger and Worley are part of the
comprehensive team that delivers cancer
care at Saint Peters. Saint Peters offers
cancer care for both adults and children,
providing a full-service oncology program,
including an inpatient unit and outpatient
radiation and infusion services. The
hospital is accredited by the American
College of Surgeons Commission on
Cancer as a Teaching Hospital Cancer
Program.
The Saint Peters Breast Center, whose
physicians also are members of the
network of Saint Peters Physician
Associates, was the rst breast center in
central New Jersey to earn a full three-year
accreditation by the National Accreditation
Program for Breast Centers, a program of
the American College of Surgeons.
Marie Welshinger, MD, and Michael
Worley, Jr., MD, are seeing patients
at 78 Easton Avenue, New Brunswick.
They can be reached at 732-828-3300.
