This world-class center for cancer research and treatment provides you a window into care and clinical research at the forefront of hematology and oncology.
Roswell Park combines providing comprehensive cancer care with conducting vital research into cancer, with more than 120 beds and an extensive outpatient practice. Its integration of research, treatment and educational programs have met rigorous national standards and made fundamental contributions to reducing the burden of cancer. Patients visit it from all parts of Western New York and northern Pennsylvania.
The institute’s consistent success in these areas have earned it the National Cancer Institute’s designation of “comprehensive cancer center.” It is the only facility in Upstate New York to hold this honor and one of only 40 such centers in the United States.
Surgery rotations here include specialized surgical oncology care in soft tissue, melanoma, thoracic, head and neck, breast, and plastics services.
RPCCC also offers one of UB surgery’s biggest opportunities for research with exciting studies taking place in both the clinical and basic science settings.
