From Dr. Tung

Dr. Celestine Tung's clinical goal is to provide the best care possible to women diagnosed with gynecologic malignancies and to ensure they receive compassionate treatment during this delicate phase in their lives.  She is committed to utilizing and integrating various surgical approaches, including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery, with state of the art cancer treatments.  She is also dedicated to educating and mentoring the next generation of physicians in the care of this specialized group of patients.    Given her training in public health and population-based initiatives, her research interests include cancer prevention in women's health as well as cancer survivorship and health outcomes research. 

Dr. Tung attended Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX, where she received her medical degree and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology. She then received subspecialty training in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. She also obtained her MPH degree from the University of Texas School of Public Health.
