Dr. Gosewehr is an expert in the highly specialized field of gynecologic oncology and advanced minimally invasive (MIS) pelvic surgery. He treats all gynecologic cancers and has a particular interest in cervical and HPV related cancers. Respecting the femininity and fertility of his patients is central to his practice philosophy. In fact, in 1998 Dr. Gosewehr reported the first successful pregnancy in the United States following a minimally invasive, fertility-preserving approach to cervical cancer.

I absolutely love my team at Compass Oncology and Dr. Gosewehr is just what I was looking for in a doctor to lead the way through my treatment. He is personable, sees me as a person, and shares information with me in a way that I can understand with great analogies, and even sometimes a bit of humor. He says tough things well (when needed), but he also celebrates with you when sharing good news. – Healthgrades

I’m so thankful and blessed for having Dr. Gosewehr, his team and Compass in this process – Healthgrades

Yes I would highly recommend him and his team!! I remember praying I would get my daughters surgeon, I couldn’t believe it when his office was the office that called. Dr Gosewehr is an excellent doctor/surgeon. I feel blessed to have had him, and his team as my surgery team, including his anesthesiologist, Dr. Chow. I gave Dr Chow my concerns, and he made sure that none of them Happened. He also did an excellent job. I woke up and was wide awake right after surgery, and I felt great!! If I could, I would give them all ten stars. Thank you Doctor Gosewehr and Doctor Chow!! God Bless you both. The nurses and staff were amazing as well! – Healthgrades

Everything always goes very smoothly when I have an appointment and feel comfortable with the care I am given. I like Dr. Gosewehr as my physician because he is up to date on current procedures and information. He had shown real concern for me when things where less than perfect. He has always taken the time to explain everything in detail and answered all my questions in a manner I can understand. I trust his judgment and have nothing but good to say about him. – Healthgrades
