Our Treatment Approach

Our center provides patients with access to a team of highly trained lymphoma experts. We were the first in western Pennsylvania to provide FDA-approved CAR T-cell therapy for adult patients with certain types of B-cell lymphomas, and our physicians and researchers are also participating in—and in some cases, leading—industry-sponsored clinical trials investigating additional CAR T-cell therapies.

Our physicians collaborate and routinely discuss cases to develop the most appropriate treatment plans for your type and stage of disease based on the latest research and your:
