In her role as gynecologic oncologist at CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center, Dr. Sybilann Williams specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs—a position for which she is uniquely qualified. Dr. Williams, herself, is a breast cancer survivor, and thus, shares a firsthand understanding of the physical and emotional hardships her patients face.
Before joining CTCA, Dr. Williams served as an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University Medical School. After receiving her medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, she went on to complete her residency at Hartford Hospital and a fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
When it comes to lending her patients an empathetic ear, Dr. Williams takes a compassionate “hands-on” approach, kneeling down to speak with patients who are seated or in a wheelchair. She will often join her patients in prayer, if asked.
