Cancer Care

At Roswell Park, we treat the whole patient, not just your cancer.

Our patient-centric, multidisciplinary teams include an array of clinical and supportive care experts who work together on your personalized care plan. Having all of these experts under one roof helps to ensure an accurate diagnosis, an individualized treatment plan tailored to your cancer, supportive care throughout your treatment that heals more than just your body and a long-term survivorship plan to help you live your best life after treatment ends.

Cancer types

Our physicians treat a high number of patients with specific types of cancer. They have more experience than doctors who see a small number of cancer patients each year and who don’t specialize in one cancer type. Research shows more experience translates into better patient outcomes. Find your cancer type to learn about your cancer and your treatment options — some of which are only offered here — and meet the team members who will care for you.
