Myeloproliferative disorder, or myeloproliferative neoplams, can be challenging to diagnose and treat, often requiring years of follow-up care and treatment. At UofL Brown Cancer Center, a team of experts, which may include hematologists, pathologists, advanced practice nurses and physician's assistants, as well as a specially trained support staff, plans your treatment for myeloproliferative disease by drawing upon the very latest advancements and therapies.

It all begins with precise diagnosis by our specialized pathologists, who use advanced technology and skill to pinpoint the exact disorder. We have extensive expertise in diagnosing myeloproliferative disorder, as well as the latest technology. Diagnosis of myeloproliferative disorder can be challenging. It often does not have symptoms in the early stages, and when it does they are often mistaken for signs of other diseases. A doctor must have a high degree of experience in MPD to make an accurate diagnosis.

Our level of experience and expertise can make a profound difference in your treatment. Our experts design a care plan specifically for you, drawing upon the most advanced options with the least impact on your body.
