Why Choose Duke
A Team Approach to Care
Diagnosis, treatment, and management of hematologic malignancies requires a team of specialists from several fields of medicine. Depending on the type and stage of your blood cancer and the other organs affected, you may work with hematologists/oncologists, bone marrow transplant specialists, infectious disease experts, radiation oncologists, cardiologists, neurologists, and others. Our patient coordinators will assist you in navigating your appointments and all aspects of your care.
Blood Cancer Experts
Our blood cancer specialists are recognized leaders in hematologic oncology, malignant hematology, stem cell and bone marrow transplantation, cellular therapy, and immunotherapy. We work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that includes diagnostic visits, routine check-ups, and sick visits when you’re not feeling well.
Nationally Recognized for Cancer Care
We treat more than 1000 people with blood cancer each year. As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are recognized for meeting rigorous standards for laboratory, clinical, and population-based research, and for focusing our scientific efforts on developing new and better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. We are also part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation’s leading cancer centers dedicated to improving patient care.
You may be eligible to participate in clinical trials of new targeted therapies and ways to minimize common cancer-related symptoms before they become widely available at other hospitals.
Advanced Therapies Available
Novel techniques, such as less intensive chemotherapy prior to a stem cell transplant, were pioneered in part at Duke. We are one of only a few North Carolina centers certified to administer two FDA-approved CAR T-cell therapies for non-Hodgkin lymphoma in adults and leukemia in children and young adults.
Support for You and Your Loved Ones
Our comprehensive cancer support services range from helping to minimize the side effects of treatment, to coping with the emotional and psychological effects of diagnosis and treatment. These services include nutrition counseling, palliative care, guided imagery, anxiety control, and meditation. Our cancer survivorship clinic pulls together a range of resources specially designed to help survivors after treatment ends. You can view all of our cancer support groups in our event calendar.
Where you receive your cancer care is important. Duke University Hospital is proud of our team and the exceptional care they provide. They are why our cancer program is nationally ranked, and the highest ranked program in North Carolina, according to U.S. News & World Report for 2021–2022.
