Our experience can make all the difference when it comes to achieving the best possible outcome and quality of life.
Our kidney cancer treatment team
At Moffitt, we know that having the opinion of multiple cancer experts is always better than having just one. That’s why our kidney cancer program includes experts from several specialties, including:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Other medical and supportive care professionals
Working hand in hand, our experts develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient based on his or her specific diagnosis and health care needs. Kidney cancer treatment can vary according to a cancer’s stage and extent, but many plans include surgery to remove all or a portion of an affected kidney and some surrounding tissues and lymph nodes. Targeted radiation therapy and chemotherapy may also be recommended, as well as advanced immunotherapies to enhance the body’s ability to fight cancer.
Moffitt strives to make our cancer treatment as easily accessible as possible to patients from West Palm Beach and other cities. That’s why we’ve partnered with several hotels near our cancer center to offer reduced rates to our out-of-town patients and their families. These hotels adhere to our strict hygiene standards and are dedicated to the comfort and satisfaction of their guests.
