Diseases and Conditions
Leukemia and Lymphoma
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma, you want quick access to the best, state-of-the-art medical care available. At the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care, our team of cancer specialists works together to deliver accessible state-of-the-art, comprehensive care to each of our patients. Our physicians are leaders in their fields, dedicated to pushing the limits of scientific research and discovery—and putting those innovations into practice.
Multidisciplinary Approach to Care
Our fully integrated team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, bone marrow transplantation physicians and coordinators, hematologists and immunologists, along with an array of trained clinical experts, is devoted to the management of all types of cancers of the blood, bone marrow and lymph system. We listen to our patients, respect their personal needs and desires, and place a premium on enhancing their quality of life.
Comprehensive Treatment Plan
For each patient, our team develops a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan that is designed to achieve the best possible outcome and closely monitors the progress of that treatment to allow for rapid adjustments as needed. Patients meet with their entire team during their initial visit to gain a full understanding of their diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Throughout treatment, our specialists meet weekly to discuss the condition of each of our patients to ensure they are receiving the most effective treatment plan possible.
Technologically Advanced Facilities
Our patients have access to the most technologically advanced facilities available. From state-of-the-art transfusion and infusion centers, to a new radiation oncology facility that offers the most innovative and comprehensive array of radiation therapy services available in the New York metropolitan area. With the most modern facilities, Montefiore is on the cutting edge of treatment for cancers of the blood, bone marrow and lymph system.
We are committed to providing family-centered care in a nurturing environment, which is why we offer our patients a full spectrum of support services. From nutritional guidance to complementary and alternative therapies, including yoga and stress management, our focus is on treating the whole patient.
