Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute is the largest cancer center in the region and sees more than 4,000 new patients every year. This volume gives us the experience to accurately diagnose cancer – even rare types for which the region may see just one case per year.

We are the region’s only member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Alliance. This membership enables us to maintain the same care standards as the world’s leading cancer programs through measurement of over 500 capability and outcomes metrics. You can feel confident that your patients will receive the latest evidence-based care.

Multidisciplinary consultation
