Cancer Treatment Information for Residents of Miami, FL
The latest advances in cancer treatment are available to patients from Miami, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. A global leader in treatment and clinical research, Moffitt serves patients with all types of cancer. Our experts take an individualized approach to treatment that focuses on addressing each patient’s unique needs and health care preferences. By merging individualized attention with advanced treatment methods, Moffitt is able to provide more positive outcomes and an improved quality of life for our patients.
Of course, Miami, FL, has no shortage of cancer treatment providers, but many patients across the state and throughout the country choose to travel to Moffitt for their treatment and care. Here are a few reasons why:
- Moffitt features multispecialty treatment teams of surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and many other experts, who all focus solely on their area of specialty. For example, if you require breast cancer treatment, you will be seen by specialists who focus exclusively on breast cancer.
- Moffitt is a high-volume cancer center, which means our physicians have a unique level of experience treating complex and uncommon malignancies. We routinely treat cancers that many other specialists see only a few times throughout their careers.
- Moffitt is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center that is based in Florida. This distinction can be attributed to our ambitious research initiatives and robust clinical trial program, which allow eligible patients to receive the latest cancer treatment breakthroughs before they are made widely available.
