If you or a loved one is faced with a diagnosis of multiple myeloma, Norton Cancer Institute provides the comprehensive care you need to help manage the disease and improve your quality of life.
Working closely with you and your primary care physician, we’ll devise a personalized treatment plan based on the stage and symptoms of the cancer, plus the presence of any other medical conditions. We also offer ongoing support services for the whole family, and access to world-class clinical trials in Louisville.
Treatments and Therapies for Bone Marrow Cancer
Treatment for multiple myeloma typically involves chemotherapy, radiation or stem cell transplants, with the goal of remission. Different treatments work differently from patient to patient. Your Norton Cancer Institute oncologist will work closely with you to determine the best course of treatment and walk you through the pros and cons of each.
Explore Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trials
In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, Norton Cancer Institute gives our myeloma patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.
Support and Ongoing Care
Norton Cancer Institute Resource Centers offer a variety of support services that address the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of myeloma patients and their families. The Centers house a library of educational resources about bone marrow cancer prevention, detection, treatment and recovery. Specially trained oncology nurses are also on hand to provide one-on-one counseling.
