Why choose us?

At MD Anderson, we understand how hard it can be to choose a hospital for cancer treatment. You've just received life-changing news, and now you have to decide how to handle it. Here are some of the reasons why MD Anderson is your best hope for cancer care.

Expertise

We focus exclusively on cancer and have seen cases of every kind. Our doctors treat more rare cancers in a single day than most physicians see in a lifetime. That means you receive expert care no matter your diagnosis.

We're one of the largest cancer centers in the world. We've been working to eliminate cancer for more than seven decades. Our depth of experience contributes to every aspect of your care.

We have ranked as one of the top two hospitals in cancer care every year since U.S. News & World Report began its annual "America's Best Hospitals" survey in 1990.

Our physicians are frequently recognized as among the best in the nation by services including Best Doctors in America.

We have more nurses per patient than many hospitals in the country, so you receive the utmost attention and quality care.

We're world-renowned for using and developing front-line diagnostic technology. That lets physicians pinpoint each patient's unique cancer and tailor treatment for the best possible outcome.

Cutting-edge Research

One of our greatest strengths is our ability to translate today's most promising laboratory findings into tomorrow's new, more effective and less traumatic treatments. We've pioneered countless medical advances over the years. Our patients benefit from that quest by receiving not only the best treatments to minimize or eliminate their cancer, but those treatments that will also give them the best chance at a high quality of life afterwards.

New and innovative therapies generally are available at MD Anderson several years before they become standard in the community. Our clinical trials incorporate state-of-the-art patient care, while evaluating the most recent developments in cancer medicine. They also offer treatment opportunities for difficult or aggressive tumors.

MD Anderson ranks first in the number and amount of research grants awarded by the National Cancer Institute. By studying how cancer begins and responds to various treatments, we can help patients overcome disease and prevent recurrence.

Patient Support and Education

At MD Anderson, there's more to cancer care than medications and therapies. As a comprehensive cancer center, we offer support and educational programs that help you deal with emotional and physical effects of your disease and prepare for a healthier life after treatment. These include:

  • Integrative and complementary therapies: We provide therapies that help relieve pain and stress while promoting a sense of calm and well-being. Among these are yoga classes, meditation sessions, oncology massage, acupuncture and music therapy. Read more about our integrative and complementary therapies.
  • Counseling and support: From social workers to support groups to setting up one-on-one connections between cancer patients and survivors, our support programs help patients and caregivers through diagnosis, treatment and beyond you through your diagnosis and treatment. Learn more about our counseling and support programs.
  • Educational resources: From our onsite patient education libraries to our online Knowledge Center, we help patients and caregivers understand and deal with their diagnosis and treatment.
  • Lifestyle change support: Living a healthier life can make treatment more effective and prevent recurrence once treatment has ended. Our services include nutrition counseling, exercise and physical activity consultations and tobacco cessation programs.
