Lymphomas: Diagnosis & Treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering

Pictured: Andrew Zelenetz Oncologist Andrew Zelenetz takes part in a meeting of the Lymphoma Service, a close-knit, multidisciplinary group that provides expert care to each of our patients and is constantly working to improve treatments.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has more than 30 doctors on staff who specialize in the care of people with Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Our multidisciplinary team of experts includes board-certified hematologic oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, and pathologists, as well as nurses with specialized expertise in lymphoma. If you require stem cell transplantation, we are also home to one of the leading, longest-running programs in the United States for both autologous transplants (using the patient's own stem cells) and allogeneic transplants (using donated stem cells).

Memorial Sloan Kettering uses a team approach to care. Our specialists meet regularly to discuss each patient's case, and to determine the best approach to treatment. We use sophisticated imaging and laboratory tests to determine what type of lymphoma you have, and how widely it has spread in the body. Once we understand the specific nature of your disease, we personalize treatment to your specific needs.

Our lymphoma treatment program is complemented by our extensive research efforts to improve survival for people with lymphoma. Because many of our doctors also engage in clinical research, patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering have access to new treatments that are not widely available at other hospitals.
