Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation

Our program is ranked among the top 25 pediatric cancer programs in the nation, thanks to the dedicated UofL team who oversee our multiple programs.

The UofL Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplantation cares for children with a wide range of blood disorders and cancer, with outpatient services delivered at our University of Louisville Physicians-Pediatric Cancer and Blood Diseases office and inpatient care at Kosair Children's Hospital.
Our team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, chaplains, behaviorists, and art, music and massage therapists. They provide our patients and families with a structured support service to assist with their psychosocial needs. Using treatment protocols sponsored by the Children's Oncology Groupand other pediatric hematology/oncology research groups, as well as UofL clinical investigators, we are able to provide children with a wide variety of innovative treatments.
We provide evaluation and treatment for a wide range of oncology and hematology conditions, including: leukemia, lymphoma, brain tumors, neuroblastoma, osteosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, other childhood solid tumors. We also provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of non-malignant blood disorders, such as hemophilia, thalassemia, aplastic anemia, sickle cell anemia and other diseases of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Our active pediatric stem cell program is the only program for children in the state that offers a full range of allogeneic and autologous stem cell transplants for patients with malignant and non-malignant diseases.
Our experimental therapeutic program offers novel Phase I and II clinical trials for children with high risk or relapsed cancers.
Our sickle cell treatment program is one of the largest in the country, and offers a variety of novel studies to manage the complications associated with sickle cell disease.
