Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive, compassionate care to patients who may have, or have been diagnosed with, multiple myeloma. New patients are seen within five to seven days, and patients receive a personalized treatment plan after their first visit. All follow-up care is arranged by our dedicated nurse coordinator.
The Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Multiple Myeloma Clinic offers the following services to patients:
Expert Diagnosis & Advanced Treatment Options
The physicians at Rush are experienced in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma through a combination of tests, including blood work, x-rays and bone marrow biopsy. Rush has its own on-site, bone marrow procedure lab and oversees more than 1,000 samples annually.
Once a diagnosis is made, patients will be evaluated at the first appointment to determine if they are candidates for stem cell transplant or induction chemotherapy. Our bone marrow transplant program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy and is led by Henry C. Fung, MD. For more information about multiple myeloma and transplant, see our Bone Marrow Transplant and Multiple Myeloma page.
Clinic patients have access to our team of consulting specialists in the areas of orthopedic oncology, neurosurgery, nephrology, bone marrow transplant, radiation oncology, general surgery and pain management.
We also offer a number of clinical trials for both newly diagnosed and relapsed patients. For more information about our latest offerings, please see our Clinical Trials for Multiple Myeloma page.
