Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has a long-standing, multidisciplinary team approach to providing the most effective and advanced treatments to men and women with lymphoma. Although you will have a primary doctor who coordinates your care, all patients — regardless of the type of treatment they receive — are cared for by a team of experts.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering specialists care for more than 1,200 newly diagnosed people with lymphoma each year, and many others who receive ongoing or follow-up care. Our team includes experts in all of the fields necessary to treat lymphomas, including medical oncology, radiation oncology, stem cell transplantation with high-dose chemotherapy, pathology, radiology, and surgery. Having experts on the team in all of these disciplines ensures that your treatment plan is coordinated and comprehensive.
