At the Rogel Cancer Center, there is hope, innovation and support for those diagnosed with leukemia. Contact us: 734-647-8902

Leukemia is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal increase of white blood cells. There are several types of leukemia. The following lists the most common; if you don't see your cancer listed, please call our Cancer AnswerLine™ at 800-865-1125 for information.

Patient Care and Treatment

The University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center provides diagnosis and treatment to those with all types of leukemia. Our clinic follows a team approach to care, where patients will have their situation discussed not only by our hematologists, but also by hematopathologists, advanced practice practitioners, registered nurses and social workers. By having everyone involved, a personalized treatment plan is developed. In most cases, this discussion happens the same day as the appointment.

Most leukemia patients are seen in our leukemia clinic located in C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, where clinic and treatment rooms offer a state-of-the-art filtration system specifically to keep immuno-suppressed patients safe.

Bone Marrow Transplant
For some of our leukemia patients, it may be advisable to undergo a Bone Marrow Transplant Program -- a procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells.

CAR-T Therapy:
CAR T stands for chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy. This cellular therapy uses a patient's immune system to target the tumor.
