Leukemia

Louisville’s Leader in Leukemia Care

Norton Cancer Institute is the leading provider of leukemia care in Louisville and Southern Indiana. Our leukemia specialists are board-certified and fellowship-trained leaders in their field. They’re at the forefront of developing innovative approaches to getting patients back to living their lives.

If you’ve been diagnosed with leukemia, you want to start getting better right away. That’s why we offer same-day appointments for newly diagnosed patients.

At Norton Cancer Institute, you’ll have a one-on-one relationship with your oncologist, radiation oncologist or other specialist. The next cancer doctor you see will be either someone you know or someone you’ll be seeing again who knows your case.

Innovative Leukemia Care Tailored for You

We use the latest equipment and procedures to make a precise diagnosis that shows how advanced your cancer is. We’ll use that to tailor a treatment plan just for you.

We will devise a personalized care plan based on the severity of your leukemia and presence of any other medical conditions. Plus, you have access to innovative clinical trials, as well as a suite of leukemia support services and a dedicated patient navigator to walk you through every phase of care.

Our state-of-the-art treatments include immunotherapy and biologic therapies that can provide a unique treatment designed specifically to combat the genetic makeup of your cancer.

Your treatment plan could include chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant or both. Your physician may decide on other types of treatments, including biological, targeted and radiation therapy.

You can participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.
