Men and women in West Palm Beach, Florida, have access to the latest developments in multiple myeloma treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. One of the largest cancer centers in the nation based on patient volume, Moffitt is a leader in the evaluation and treatment of malignant blood disorders. Our Malignant Hematology Program is led by a multispecialty team that focuses exclusively on myelomas, lymphomas and leukemia, giving them unparalleled expertise in treating even the most uncommon and complex blood malignancies.
What are the treatment options for multiple myeloma?
Each patient’s ideal course of multiple myeloma treatment will vary according to his or her overall health and specific type of myeloma. There are five main types of multiple myeloma, each requiring a different treatment approach. To help our patients achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life, our multiple myeloma program includes physicians from multiple specialists who collaborate to develop individualized treatment plans. Our team of professionals includes:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Radiation therapists
- Supportive care professionals
Research is a major focus at Moffitt. While we offer the latest breakthroughs in multiple myeloma treatment, such as targeted radiation therapy and bone marrow transplantation, we won’t be satisfied until every patient has access to a cure. That’s why we lead an ambitious clinical trial program to improve the way malignant blood diseases are treated. Patients who participate in this program can benefit from the newest therapies and procedures before they are made widely available.
At Moffitt, we understand that traveling to Tampa from West Palm Beach comes with a few logistical challenges. To help make things easier for our patients, we’ve partnered with several local hotels that offer reduced rates to individuals and their families who travel to our center for cancer treatment.
