CHESTER, N.J., July 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Prominently featured in The Inner Circle, Nana E. Tchabo, MD, FACOG, is acknowledged as a Pinnacle Life Member for her contributions to the field of Gynecologic Oncology.              

Dr. Tchabo pursued higher education at Brown University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and a minor in Women’s Studies. She then attended the Warren Alpert Brown University School of Medicine, where she was cited for academic excellence. The doctor completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Georgetown University; a research fellowship in ovarian cancer and molecular techniques at the National Cancer Institute; and a Fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo.

Dr. Tchabo currently works at Atlantic Women’s Cancer Associates, a part of Atlantic Health System Morristown and Overlook Medical Centers. As part of her responsibilities, the doctor coordinates unified, comprehensive care integrating various treatments including minimally invasive surgery; chemotherapy; radiation therapy; along with supportive care services.

Focused on prevention and survivorship, Dr. Tchabo is a Principal Investigator on many of the gynecologic cancer clinical research trials available at the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center and serves as Associate Residency Director for Gynecology at Overlook Medical Center. She is also an Assistant Clinical Professor at Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. Her prior appointments include Assistant Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicines’ Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science.

Board-certified in both Obstetrics and Gynecology & Gynecologic Oncology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG), Dr. Tchabo notes that the mission of the ABOG is to define specialty standards; certify obstetricians and gynecologists; and facilitate continuous learning to advance knowledge; practice; and professionalism in women’s health.

A Gynecologic Oncologist, like Dr. Tchabo, is a physician who specializes in treating women with reproductive tract cancers.
