Specialists draw blood from your body and treat it with a light-sensitizing drug. Then the blood is exposed to ultraviolet light, which kills the lymphoma cancer cells. Finally, these cancer-free cells are mixed back in with the rest of the blood and safely returned back into your bloodstream.
Mercy specialists are experienced in performing extracorporeal photopheresis. If you’re a candidate for this T-Cell lymphoma treatment, your Mercy doctor will explain exactly what you can expect and answer any questions you might have.
As part of a coordinated team of health experts, your doctor is focused on providing the care that’s right for you. At Mercy, we have one overriding goal: to get you beyond cancer and back to a life of doing the things you love.
