Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian announced that Antonio Castaneda, M.D., a fellowship-trained and widely published gynecologic oncologist, has joined Hoag Gynecologic Oncology (HGO). Dr. Castaneda comes to Hoag from the Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center, where he served on staff in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology.

Dr. Castaneda is a nationally respected physician whose research has been published in numerous books and other publications, including both peer-reviewed and non-peer reviewed medical journals. His research and expertise cover a wide spectrum of gynecologic oncology issues, from the COVID-19 pandemic’s implications for women with early-stage cervical cancer, to the incidence of ovarian metastasis in small cell neuroendocrine tumors of the uterine cervix.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Castaneda to our team,” said John V (Jeb) Brown, MD, FACOG, FACS, co-director of Gynecologic Oncology and chair of the Robotics Committee at Hoag. “His experience and insights into researching and treating the serious gynecologic cancers that can afflict women will further build upon Hoag’s reputation for providing extraordinary care to our patients.”
