The latest advancements in lymphoma treatment are available to residents of Fort Myers, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Standing at the forefront of cancer research and clinical treatment, Moffitt is among the largest cancer centers in the nation based on patient volume. Our Malignant Hematology Program helps patients with Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas achieve the best possible outcomes and quality of life by merging groundbreaking therapies with individualized treatment.
Moffitt’s approach to treating lymphoma
When it comes to lymphoma treatment, the opinions of many specialists are better than one. That’s why our lymphoma program includes experienced physicians from multiple specialties, including:
- Medical oncology
- Radiation oncology
Our specialists collaborate to develop a tailored treatment plan for each patient based on the specifics of his or her diagnosis. This level of individualization is key to achieving the best possible results, as both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas can take multiple forms that respond to treatment differently. Depending on the type of lymphoma and many other factors, a patient’s treatment plan may include chemotherapy, immunotherapy, phototherapy, targeted radiation therapy or other advanced therapies. Some patients may also benefit from stem cell transplantation through Moffitt’s Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program.
Moffitt offers leading-edge treatment for lymphoma, but we won’t be satisfied until there is a cure for every patient. That’s why we lead several ambitious research initiatives and a clinical trial program to facilitate breakthroughs in diagnostics and treatment. In recognition of our efforts, the National Cancer Institute has designated Moffitt as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and we are the only such center based in Florida.
We invite lymphoma patients and their families who are traveling to Moffitt from Fort Myers to take advantage of the discounted rates offered by our partner hotels. These establishments meet or exceed our rigorous hygiene standards and are committed to helping our patients feel at home while in Tampa.
