Leukemia is a cancer of the body's blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system, affecting both adults and children. Leukemia usually disrupts the normal functioning of the white blood cells (WBCs) due to excessive amounts of abnormal WBCs.
Our North American and European Board Certified expert hematologists and oncologists offer comprehensive care for complex leukemia cases along with state-of-the-art technologies and advanced techniques to facilitate successful patient outcomes.
Leukemia may be detected in a routine blood test even before symptoms begin. Our highly skilled physicians perform a thorough physical exam of the patient and conduct a series of diagnostic tests to reach an accurate diagnosis. These may include:
- Blood tests
- Bone marrow biopsy
- Genetic testing
Treatment for leukemia depends on many factors, including the patient’s age, overall health, type of leukemia, and progression. Our doctors provide therapies that ensure effective treatment of the condition. These may include:
- Targeted therapy
- Bone marrow transplant (2022)
- Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy (2023)
