Why You Need a Second Opinion

If you have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma — or your previously treated disease has recurred — you need a second opinion. We will ensure you get it without delay.

We can arrange for Roswell Park’s multiple myeloma experts, including hematopathologists who focus specifically on blood conditions, to review your blood work right away, and set up a consultation with our team.

Many of our patients travel to receive cancer care at Roswell Park. If you live far from Roswell Park, we can help arrange what works best for you, including virtual consultations or receiving some of your care closer to home. Call 1-800-ROSWELL (1-800-767-9355) or click the button below to submit a request online.

Why it matters for multiple myeloma

Treatment for multiple myeloma has evolved so that targeted therapies and immunotherapies are replacing chemotherapy for many patients. Treatment focuses on getting you into remission, with minimal residual disease, and extending the duration of the remission. Achieving this requires access to the very latest options which may include:

  • Stem cell transplant. About half of patients will need stem cell transplant at some point. We use the latest strategies for optimizing the efficacy of the treatment, preventing complications such as graft-versus-host disease, and leading to a deeper remission.
  • Chimeric antigen (CAR) T-cell therapy. Roswell Park is the only authorized treatment center in the region offering Abecma™ and Carvykti™, the only CAR T-cell therapies approved for multiple myeloma.
  • Clinical trials of the newest approaches. Roswell Park has several novel options available to patients only through clinical trials. In addition, our researchers have been developing new targeted agents and next-generation cellular therapies that will be brought to clinical trials soon.

Yes, you have time for a second opinion

We understand the urgency of a cancer diagnosis and your desire to move quickly. However, very few diagnoses require that treatment or surgery occur immediately. The fastest treatment is not always the best treatment, and you owe it to yourself to take time now to ensure your treatment plan is the right one for you. We can help.
