What is the #1 hospital for cancer treatment in the US?

MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas seems to be where most hospitals send cancer patients, at least around here. (Louisville, Nashville) I know of two people personally who have been sent there.

One woman with Stage 4 breast cancer was sent there, and now a year later is cancer free.

The other a young woman with a brain tumor and they operated and got the entire tumor out.

MD Anderson has also been on news shows for being the nation's leader cancer center.

You can check out their website for more information.

There are many great treatment centers across the country. They are all affiliated with a major medical school and are usually in big cities. The most important thing you can do is go to a major hospital. The little local community hospitals will give you treatment that is not state-of-the-art. The hospital that you pick should be based partly on where you live and on what type of cancer you have.

Guess I'm ethnocentric to NY...Sloan Ketterin is world-renowned, surprised no one else mentioned it...I am a practicing medical professional in NY, as far as I know they are the best...wouldn't know much outside of NY all the same...good luck

I'm not really sure about the whole country but Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago is the best here.
They treated my mother's cancer and did a wonderful job.

There's many but Dana Farber in Boston has saved my life and I recommend it to everybody. That's the truth! My local doctors would have watched me die.
