Weill Cornell Medicine’s world-renowned Multiple Myeloma Center is dedicated to delivering the most advanced treatment and comprehensive care for patients with all stages of multiple myeloma and related plasma cell disorders. We also treat rare plasma disorders such as amyloidosis, POEMS, light or heavy chain deposition disease and cryoglobulinemia.
We are an integrated center and have developed an outstanding multidisciplinary team that includes medical oncologists, hematologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, transplant physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
At the Weill Cornell Multiple Myeloma Center, we view each person as an individual, and our approach ensures that each treatment regimen is narrowly tailored to meet the unique needs of each of our patients and their families. We pride ourselves on the one-on-one relationships we develop with our patients and their loved ones, and we collaborate with referring providers to ensure that everyone is on the same page with regards to the course of treatment. Additionally, we realize that a cancer diagnosis can affect your whole life, so we provide support beyond just delivering the best medical treatment. We offer educational sessions, support groups, nutritional guidance, and more.
Our team is comprised of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical technologists with many years of experience in providing outstanding clinical care for multiple myeloma and related plasma cell disorders. Our team of internationally-recognized myeloma experts is known for advanced work and published research in:
- Anti-angiogenic therapy of myeloma
- Radioactive antibody therapies
- New chemotherapy drugs
- Vaccine therapies
Many diverse treatment options exist for myeloma and we always personalize treatment based on the individual. The type of treatment prescribed depends on the characteristics of the myeloma, the side effects encountered, and the patient’s desired treatment schedule. We offer treatment for people who have been newly diagnosed with myeloma, as well as those with relapsed or progressive myeloma that is not responding to standard therapies.
Some of the state-of-the-art treatment options that we offer include:
- Stem cell transplants with our world-renowned team of in-house experts
- Bendamustine, a therapy that is well tolerated and has excellent response rates in patients with myeloma.
- Daratumumab, a promising therapy for relapsed multiple myeloma. We are one of only five medical facilities in the New York area authorized to deliver this treatment.
In addition to offering standard treatment therapies for multiple myeloma and other plasma cell disorders, we offer access to the most promising new drugs and medical procedures through clinical trials. These trials allow us to bring new therapeutic options to our patients, often years before they become widely available. We are committed to moving the field forward through medical advances with the potential to alleviate the suffering from myeloma in the future. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure for multiple myeloma.
In concert with your referring physician, we are always available to offer a second opinion in the form of a consultation with one of our specialists.
