Oncology Infectious Disease


The Oncology Infectious Disease program is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of infectious complications in patients receiving cancer therapy. We care for patient undergoing surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation therapy for hematologic and solid tumor malignancies. In addition, we provide consultative care for patients receiving hematopoietic stem cell transplantations and CAR T-Cell therapy.

This service was created in 2000 to support UNMC’s nationally renowned, NCCN-designated cancer center.  We work in close collaboration with our hematology, oncology, and surgical sub-specialty colleagues in patient care, research and education.  We see patients in the inpatient and outpatient setting at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center on the University of Nebraska Medical Center campus. We work with three dedicated advanced practice providers and rotating fellows.
