Hoag welcomes Antonio Castaneda, M.D., nationally prominent gynecologic oncologist

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.”

“Hoag is world-renowned for its pioneering advancements in minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery, innovative clinical trials and research, and specialty programs for people at higher risk of developing gynecologic cancer,” Dr. Castaneda said. “I have found the team here to be stimulating and inspiring, and I’m looking forward to working together to advance patient care in Orange County.” 

After earning his doctorate of medicine from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Dr. Castaneda completed an obstetrics and gynecology residency at University of Southern California, where he received the LAC+USC Nurses Choice Award for Patient Care and Professionalism for three consecutive years. 

Dr. Castaneda joins Hoag Gynecologic Oncology’s expert, fellowship-trained and board-certified gynecologic oncologists who treat more patients in Orange County than any other health system. These experts work together in the prevention, early detection and treatment of gynecologic cancers using promising new therapies and complementary care. 

As a result, Hoag is consistently recognized for its outstanding care. The hospital was designated by the Surgical Review Corporation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERSTM) for its unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care. 

Hoag recently opened an 18-chair dedicated gynecologic infusion center in Newport Beach to provide infusion care and physician appointments in one convenient location. The infusion center is part of Hoag’s patient-centered approach to integrated care, which improves a patient’s experience and outcomes as she goes through her cancer journey.
