Cancer and Blood Disorder Programs

The University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics is home to several treatment programs for children with cancer and blood disorders. Thanks to the partnership with Norton Children's Hospital and the dedicated UofL team of pediatric hematology, oncology, and bone marrow transplant specialists we are ranked among the top 25 pediatric cancer programs in the nation. Our sickle cell treatment program is one of the largest in the country, offering red cell cytapheresis which enables patients to live without many of the complications associated with this disease. We have Kentucky's largest survivorship program for children and young adults who are survivors of childhood cancer.
