How is Huntsman Cancer Institute different from other myeloma treatment centers?
The Myeloma Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute is known for its tandem transplant protocol, a treatment approach offered at very few medical centers around the country. Research demonstrates that the median survival rate with this treatment process is 10 years or more and that 80% of newly-diagnosed myeloma patients will achieve complete remission. No other treatment method for myeloma has proven to be as effective in studies.
Since not all health insurance companies will cover a tandem transplant, it is important for patients to check with their insurance company to find out if they have coverage. If not, we have other effective myeloma treatments available as well.
We have two physicians who have been researching and treating multiple myeloma for over two decades, and all of our patients are assigned to one of these two doctors. It is our promise that for every doctor's appointment, our patients will see their myeloma specialist and never a less experienced physician.
Every patient deserves to have the opportunity to have all questions and concerns about their myeloma addressed. That is why we give all new patients approximately two hours with their myeloma specialist for the initial visit and approximately one hour for all future clinic visits. It is this kind of personalized care that sets us apart.
In addition to providing the best possible medical treatment from our internationally recognized myeloma specialists, we are dedicated to helping patients and their families cope with the emotional, social, physical, and financial challenges they face.
