    Xiong Ying
    Title Associate chief physician

    Dr. Xiong Ying, associate chief physician, entered Department of Gynecological Cancer at Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center in 1996. He served as the associate chief physician and advisor of master’s degree student in 2008. After coming back to China from Japan in 2005, he carried out the Okabayashi's radical hysterectomy, the systematic para-aortic lymphadenectomy and the resection for para-aortic tumor metastasis or recurrence by combining the foreign operation methods and techniques and on the basis of his proficient skills in conventional operations for common malignant gynecological tumors, such as cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer and vulvar cancer. He has mastered the techniques of radical hysterectomy, pelvic lymphadenectomy and transvaginal hysterectomy through the learning of laparoscopic technology and transvaginal operation.

    He features the following five technical advantages.
    1. He took the lead in practicing the Okabayashi's radical hysterectomy (since 2005) which is characterized by the ultra-radical parametrial tissue resection and vesicocervical ligament resection and minimizes the postoperative pelvic recurrence caused by parametrial tissue residue.

    2. He was the first to carry out the ultra-radical pelvic lymphadenectomy (since 2005). In China, the traditional pelvic lymphadenectomy takes the obturator nerve as the bottom boundary and usually leaves over the lymph adipose tissue at the back side of the obturator nerve, which may not lead to radical resection. Additionally, the localization and dissection of parametrial lymph nodes are not emphasized in China. The vascular skeletonization of parametrial lymph nodes can reveal the common metastasis of this group of lymph nodes (especially the solitary metastasis). The ultra-radical pelvic lymphadenectomy incorporates the dissection of the above two groups of lymph nodes into its regular operation scope to minimize the possibility of leaving over metastatic lymph nodes during operation.

    3. He is skilled in the systematic para-aortic lymphadenectomy and sacral lymph node dissection (since 2005). In China, these high-risk operations which require the operator to reach a high technical level are only performed in a small number of large hospitals. But they are a regular part of the operations to treat malignant ovarian tumor and endometrial cancer, etc.

    4. He is proficient in the laparoscopic radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy (since 2009).

    5. He is adept at the nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy (since 2007) which is an improved technique based on Okabayashi's radical hysterectomy. This improved hysterectomy aims to reduce postoperative urine retention. With the innovation and practice of the above-mentioned diverse operation techniques, Xiong Ying has gradually developed his unique style of operations “extensive and radical resection, delicate and fine dissection”. These operation techniques have been widely praised by his gynecological peers through the exchange and promotion across Guangdong Province and in the neighboring provinces during the last few years.

    Zhang Yanna
    Title Professor and Chief Physician

    Dr. Zhang Yanna graduated from Zhongshan medical college in 1986, and then began work at Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center (SYSUCC), where she received special training in Gynecological Oncology since 1989.

    Dr. Zhang specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for patients with gynecologic cancers. She also sees patients who require surgical management of complex conditions. She offers both surgical (especially minimally-invasive) and chemotherapy management to improve clinical outcomes for women with cancers of cervix, ovaries, uterus, vagina, and vulva.

    Dr. Zhang has a long-standing interest in the carcinogenesis, development, and prognosis of gynecologic malignancies. She has published more than 30 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, such as Gynecologic Oncology and British Journal of Cancer. She is also involved in several international clinical research trials. Besides, she served as the Editorial Board member of several books, such as Clinical Oncology and Obstetrics and Gynecology Ward Inspection Record.
