Saint Francis Medical Center and Cape Gynecologic Oncology bring a full range of services to women in southeast Missouri. The staff at Cape Gynecologic Oncology is thoroughly trained in managing difficult or life-threatening disorders and diseases affecting women’s health. They work with colleagues in internal medicine, family medicine, diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology, medical oncology, and obstetrics and gynecology to provide patients with the highest standard of care in gynecologic cancer treatment.
Cape Gynecologic Oncology provides specialty care for cancers of the female reproductive system, including:
- Cervical cancer
- Fallopian cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Vaginal cancer

While gynecologic surgery has become less invasive, often using laparoscopic approaches, Cape Gynecologic Oncology uses the da Vinci® S HD™ Surgical System, which delivers increased clinical capability while maintaining the same look and feel of open surgery. Physician Joseph H. Jacob, MD, FACOG, FACS, has performed more than a thousand surgeries in Southeast Missouri using the da Vinci system, which offers the following benefits:
- Minimally invasive and safe surgery
- Improved access to the pelvis
- Easier, quicker and more-precise suturing
