Kidney Cancer

Roswell Park’s full spectrum of state-of-the-art kidney cancer care, including prevention, treatment, support and follow-up care, is led by a team of nationally recognized kidney cancer specialists. We are committed to working with you to establish a personalized care plan that is tailored to meet your individual needs.

Roswell Park does more kidney surgeries for cancers, including more partial nephrectomies, than any other site in upstate New York. Partial nephrectomy is the gold standard treatment for the majority of kidney cancers, and enables the tumor to be taken out without taking out the kidney.

Groundbreaking research by our faculty has led to a greater understanding of kidney cancer and to major advances in treatment. We have one of the busiest IL-2 clinics in the nation. IL-2, or high-dose Interleukin-2, is an immunologic agent that stimulates the body’s immune system to change the way it responds to cancer cells.

You’ll have access to physicians who set the standard for treatment of kidney cancer worldwide. Our physicians are panel members of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), which creates guidelines for the best ways of detecting and treating kidney cancer.

Roswell Park Cancer Institute has been named a 2017–18 Best Hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report and recognized as high-performing for urology.

Pioneering Clinical Trials

Roswell Park strives to find better ways to treat kidney cancer through clinical trials, many of which have been pioneered and launched by our own translational research team.
