Dr. Patrick Stiff, who leads Loyola's Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center, specializes in treating patients with hematologic diseases such as lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma. He also leads the Bone Marrow Transplantation program, which offers patients various treatment options, including stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplantation and umbilical cord blood transplants. Over the last three decades, the survival rate for transplants has increased by 20 percent. He conducts numerous national and local clinical trials, which offer current patients treatment options that may not be available elsewhere while improving treatment for future patients. Loyola receives numerous referrals, even from other academic medical centers. He talks about Loyola's new leading-edge Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit, which offers full ICU services. Many patients referred to Loyola were considering hospice before treatment here but now are living full lives.
