Why Roswell Park for Liver Cancer Treatment?

Our world-class center

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is designated by the National Cancer Institute as one of the nation’s elite — one of a select group that meets rigorous standards for quality cancer care and pioneering research and educational missions — and we’re the only one in the state outside of New York City.

  • Our accomplished physicians are leaders in the field and hold leadership roles in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). Roswell Park physicians not only follow the evidence-based NCCN treatment guidelines used by physicians around the world; they write them.

Roswell Park’s Renuka, Iyer, MD, Co-Leader of the Liver & Pancreas Tumor Center, serves on the NCCN panel that determines the best practices for treating liver cancer.
