Dr. Kurtzberg's Care Philosophy

Im a pediatric blood and bone marrow transplant specialist. I see patients from all over the world many of whom have very rare diseases. I take care of patients with leukodystrophies leukemias and other blood disorders that are resistant to standard treatment and children with brain injuries like cerebral palsy. Its rewarding to make a difference when treating challenging diseases. Ive been fortunate over my career to be able to develop new treatments in the laboratory that I take into the clinic to help patients. In fact here at Duke I was involved in the first cord-blood transplant anywhere in the world. When meeting with patients I focus on making their experience more than just the medicine. We have a family support program for things beyond medical needs which is especially helpful for families that are far from home. Outside of work I like to knit bike and spend time with my family.

Dr. Kurtzberg has been treating me for my entire life. I was born with an extremely rare cancer and was given 2 weeks at the most to live. Dr. K has helped me with the side effects of the 8 chemotherapies and maximum amount of radiation one person can receive in their lifetime. I truly praise God for Dr. Kurtzberg.
