Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation

The UofL Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplantation strives to provide the highest level of care for children with a wide range of blood disorders and cancer. We offer outpatient services at the UofL Physicians - Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Clinic and inpatient care at Norton 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 Group and 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.
