Two MD Anderson subspecialties also were ranked highly in this year’s survey. In the Ear, Nose and Throat specialty, MD Anderson’s Head and Neck Surgery service was ranked No. 5. In Gynecology, MD Anderson’s Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine service came in at No. 7. Notably, these specialty rankings include care provided at general hospitals across the nation, not just cancer centers. The survey also named MD Anderson as “high performing” in Urology, meeting the survey’s standards for excellence.
“We’re honored by this tremendous national recognition, but the true measure of our success is the number of lives we’ve impacted with our care, research and support,” said Ronald A. DePinho, M.D., president of MD Anderson. “We owe our gratitude to the more than 20,000 cancer fighters, including world-class faculty and nurses, and 1,000-plus volunteers working every day to end cancer for our patients and others around the world. Our culture of exceptional care and genuine caring is second to none.”

Bone marrow, which makes the blood cells we need to live, is often destroyed by disease, chemotherapy or radiation. After the bone marrow and its cells have been damaged, stem cells may be used to replace diseased cells with healthy ones. This transplant enables doctors to use much higher doses of chemo in an effort to kill all of the cancer cells.
In this podcast, Richard Champlin, M.D., chair of Stem Cell Transplantation at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, explains what stem cells are and how a stem cell transplant can help patients with leukemia, multiple myeloma and other blood cancers.
