Duke's leukemia doctors work as a team to detect and treat leukemia, which occurs when the white blood cells produced in the bone marrow do not mature normally. The abnormal cells prevent the body from making healthy blood cells and can't fight infection. Our board-certified specialists provide personalized care to people with all types of leukemia including: 

  • Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
  • Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)
  • Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)
  • Hairy cell leukemia (HCL)​​​​​​
  • Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)
  • Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN)

We plan a comprehensive treatment strategy for you that uses the most advanced therapies, including many that were developed right here at Duke. Our goal is to give you the personalized care you need to bring you back to good health and maximize your quality of life.
