Many people from Orlando and cities throughout Florida choose to visit Moffitt Cancer Center for their Hodgkin lymphoma treatment. Located in nearby Tampa, Moffitt is a global leader in cancer care. Our Malignant Hematology Program features a multispecialty team that focuses exclusively on hematological cancers and routinely treats patients with uncommon and complex types of lymphoma. These factors, along with many others, combine to make Moffitt a premier destination for comprehensive Hodgkin lymphoma treatment.
Multispecialty expertise in a single location
Multiple expert opinions are better than one. Moffitt’s multispecialty approach to care means our patients benefit from the expertise of many physicians in one location, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, hematologists and pathologists who collaborate to create individualized treatment plans and refine them as necessary. Our Hodgkin lymphoma treatment team also works closely with specialists from Moffitt’s Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program to offer advanced transplantation services.
Progressive lymphoma treatment options
Moffitt stands at the forefront of Hodgkin lymphoma treatment and offers a variety of progressive, evidence-based therapies for this disease. A patient’s treatment plan will be based on the specifics of his or her diagnosis and individual care preferences, but may include a combination of:
- Radiation therapy
- Stem cell transplantation
- Radioimmunotherapy (RIT)
Our lymphoma experts and physician-scientists are diligently working to find a cure. As part of our commitment to discovering breakthroughs in lymphoma treatment, Moffitt leads ambitious research initiatives and clinical trials that give eligible patients access to emerging therapies before they are made widely available. Moffitt’s trailblazing research efforts have led to a Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute, and we are currently the only Florida-based cancer center to hold this distinction.
Diverse supportive care services
One of the many factors that contributes to Moffitt’s high patient satisfaction rates is our Supportive Care Medicine program. Designed to address the unique emotional and physical challenges of living with cancer, supportive care is integrated with and provided in the same location as clinical treatment. Our supportive care services include, but are not limited to:
- Counseling and psychological care
- Nutritional guidance
- Massage therapy
- Spiritual care
- Pain management
- Advance care planning
- Survivorship care
Moffitt also offers multiple support groups for patients as well as caretakers and family members, in addition to on-campus events, services and programs that help foster an environment of healing and wellness. For example, our patients can take part in our pet therapy program, be pampered at our salon or let their creative juices flow at our Arts in Medicine studio.
