Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment Information for Residents of Orlando, FL
There are many subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and each requires specialized treatment. At Moffitt Cancer Center, the physicians within our Malignant Hematology Program focus exclusively on hematologic cancers and have a unique level of experience in treating even the most uncommon lymphoid disorders. Thanks in part to the renowned expertise of our physicians, many people from Orlando, Florida, and throughout the world choose Moffitt in Tampa for lymphoma treatment.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma describes several malignancies that originate in the body’s lymphatic system from white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Unlike Hodgkin lymphoma, this type of cancer does not produce an abnormal type of cell known as a Reed-Sternberg cell.
In a single location, Moffitt patients who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma can receive a full spectrum of diagnostics and treatment from a multispecialty team of physicians, including:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Board-certified surgeons
- And other healthcare professionals
These experts collaborate as a tumor board to develop highly individualized treatment plans for patients based on the details of their diagnosis and several other important factors. Moffitt offers the latest advances in non-Hodgkin lymphoma treatment, from chemotherapy and radiation therapy to radio immunotherapy and surgical placement of venous devices. Many patients in our lymphoma program have the opportunity to participate in promising clinical trials, where they can receive emerging new therapies that are not yet widely available.
Orlando is not a far drive from Moffitt, but traveling to another city for cancer treatment still presents some logistical challenges. That’s why we have partnered with several hotels near our cancer center to offer reduced rates to our out-of-town patients and their families. These hotels provide clean and comfortable accommodations to help patients relax and focus on recovery.
