Leukemia is the most common form of cancer in childhood. It affects approximately 3,000 children each year in the United States.
For more than four decades, Cincinnati Children’s has been a leader in the development of new therapies for childhood leukemia. Today, the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute is one of the nation’s largest and most technically advanced referral centers for patients with leukemia and related disorders.
Our team of experts also specializes in caring for leukemia in patients with Fanconi anemia, Down syndrome, and for those with post-transplant lymphoma and lymphoproliferative disorder.
Specialists in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Program work as a team to provide leading-edge treatment while striving to maintain each patient’s quality of life. The team includes experts in:
Depending on the child’s needs, the medical team also may include specialists in diagnostic and interventional radiology, nephrology (kidney function), surgery and pathology (laboratory services).
At many medical centers, patients and families must travel between different floors or even different buildings to see specialists. Our multidisciplinary clinic brings these specialists together, making visits more convenient and enabling the highest level of communication and coordination of care.
Nurses play an integral role on the multidisciplinary team, providing patient care and extensive education. In fact, Cincinnati Children’s is known for nursing excellence. In 2009, the medical center received Magnet status from the Commission on the Magnet Recognition Program. This is the gold standard for recognizing nursing excellence and collaboration among all care providers and patients. Of approximately 5,700 hospitals in the United States, only 6 percent have achieved this status from the Magnet Recognition Program.
