Leukemia expertise at SCCA
For the best results, it’s essential to identify the exact characteristics of your disease. Even within one type of leukemia, there may be so many possible chromosomal abnormalities that the condition is really a group of related diseases, not a single disease.
Acute leukemias require complicated, intensive treatment protocols. Chronic leukemias may require care indefinitely. SCCA doctors have the latest knowledge about your particular condition, the best treatment strategies and methods to monitor your response.
Your personal team includes an oncologist who specializes in leukemia, nurse case manager and team coordinator. Additional experts who specialize in treating people with cancer will be involved if you need them — experts like an infectious disease doctor, pulmonologist, palliative care professional, geneticist, social worker, physical therapist or dietitian.
During and after treatment, your team continues to provide follow-up care on a schedule tailored to you. The SCCA Survivorship Clinic is also here to help you live your healthiest life.
