Every patient who turns to Moffitt Cancer Center for leukemia treatment is provided with an individualized plan for their condition. Since each diagnosis is different, our multispecialty leukemia team works collaboratively to determine the best approach for the patient’s specific circumstances. Moffitt Cancer Center has been designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute – a designation that recognizes our commitment to exceptional patient care and our endeavors in research and clinical trials. When you turn to the leukemia team within our Malignant Hematology Program, you’ll receive the most personalized and innovative treatments available from radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, nurses and many other professionals who are singularly dedicated to the well-being of our patients.
At Moffitt, we have both inpatient and outpatient treatments to best serve our patients’ needs. We also are committed to ongoing research and clinical trials that identify innovative treatment methodologies that may be recommended. Specifically, some of the types of leukemia treatment we currently offer include:
- Traditional chemotherapy, which is an effective way of destroying leukemia cells
- Radiation therapy, which is used to slow or stop the growth and reproduction of leukemia cells
- Bone marrow transplant, which is used to replace diseased bone marrow with healthy donor marrow; the leukemia team works closely with the Bone and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program
- Monoclonal antibody therapy, which is used to stimulate the patient’s immune system to target specific leukemia cells
To further assist in our patients’ ongoing treatment, our leukemia team works closely with local physicians who will provide ongoing care in between patient visits to Moffitt Cancer Center. We can also help with travel plans for patients who do not live nearby, making the entire process as easy as possible.
