Dr. Dirk P. Pikaart, DO

Gynecologic Oncology Surgery | Male | 46 years old

I seek to treat patients how they would like to be treated, respecting who they are and where they are at in their cancer treatment. I understand that a diagnosis of cancer can be very scary and threaten to kill, steel and destroy a persons hopes and dreams. I have helped thousands of women reclaim their hopes and dreams giving them a second chance. At Southern Colorado Gynecologic Oncology (SCGO) we offer safe, private and loving care making a very difficult time as easy as possible. I believe the best care can only be offered by places that do high volume of specialized care consistently. At SCGO we have done large volumes with well established highly trained teams of people at each step of the cancer treatment process for over 8 years. We have excellent outcomes. I provide an integrative approach to cancer treatment taking into account lifestyle, spirituality, the mind and body. Without addressing these aspects we are treating the disease not the person.Read more

Would/have recommended others to Dr Pikaart because I am confident in his abilities and skill to treat critical women's health care needs. He and his staff show great care and concern which helps to eleviate the stress, anxiety and fear when diagnosed with a major illness. He answered all my many questions, thoroughly explained all aspects from diagnosis, to treatment plan to risks associated with the treatment plan. I am deeply grateful for the care I received from Dr Pikaart and staff.

My experience with Dr. Pikaart and his office staff was a very good one. I was referred to him by my primary care. I was very nervous going to see him, not because of him, but cause of the kind of Dr. he was. I was greeted with a smile and hand shake. I like that. He took his time and explained everything to me. Listened to my concerns. Told me everything would be ok and thank God it was. Surgery was a breeze and I am very thankful he got right on top of things. I will recommend him to others.

I have had nothing but Exemplary care provided by Dr Pikaart and his staff. Dr Pikaart is very compassionate in his care for his patients. THANK YOU Dr Pikaart, and staff from the bottom of my heart!
in Canon City, CO |
Have been seeing him for about 4 years and I truly believe I am alive because of him. I can not give a higher recommendation. Yes he is often running way behind but that is because he does not ever rush any of his patients.
in Divide Colorado |
Although I only saw Dr. Pikaart once before I had surgery his kindness and care was exemplary. I think Dr. Pikaart is a fabulous Dr. Thankyou for taking such good care of me.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Pikaart is serious about giving his best effort and knowledge to help individuals such as myself. A friend of mine had just had the same exact surgery as I needed and she was as pleased as I was with his methods and capability, his caring attitude and; if you ever have to wait longer in the office than you were thinking you might, you can rest assured that it is because someone else needs him and he will just as generous with his time when you may need it.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Pikaart says..

I have spent the better part of my life training and obtaining the education required to become a Gynecologic Oncologist. I am trained to treat all aspects of Gynecologic cancers and manage the care and follow up of patients with gynecologic cancers or complicated surgical issues. This includes all aspects of surgery involved, some of which are very large and complicated. I am also trained in the administration of chemotherapy and managing the associated issues with chemotherapy. Gynecologic Oncology is the only surgical specialty that prescribes and manages chemotherapy. This unique feature provides an unprecedented level of continuity of care for my patients not seen in any other area of medicine. This continuity allows for less delays, less miss-communication, less insurance issues, uncomfortable new patient visits and exams. I believe this ultimately results in better outcomes for my patients.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Pikaart's Care Philosophy

I seek to treat patients how they would like to be treated, respecting who they are and where they are at in their cancer treatment. I understand that a diagnosis of cancer can be very scary and threaten to kill, steel and destroy a persons hopes and dreams. I have helped thousands of women reclaim their hopes and dreams giving them a second chance. At Southern Colorado Gynecologic Oncology (SCGO) we offer safe, private and loving care making a very difficult time as easy as possible. 

I believe the best care can only be offered by places that do high volume of specialized care  consistently. At SCGO we have done large volumes with well established highly trained teams of people at each step of the cancer treatment process for over 8 years. We have excellent outcomes.

I provide an integrative approach to cancer treatment taking into account lifestyle, spirituality, the mind and body. Without addressing these aspects we are treating the disease not the person.
