Clinical

Pediatric Hematology/Oncology seeks to provide the finest care for children with malignant diseases and hematologic disorders now, while participating in clinical research to develop improved therapy for the future. Our daily clinics provide care for children with a broad range of diagnoses. Disease specific clinics are also organized for Hemophilia/Coagulation, Sickle Cell Disease and Brain Tumors. An additional clinic, the Health Education Research Outcomes for Survivors of Childhood Cancer, or HERO's Clinic, addresses the delayed and often long lasting side effects of cancer therapy. A multidisciplinary team of physicians in pediatrics, laboratory medicine, surgery, neurosurgery, orthopaedics, pathology, therapeutic radiology and diagnostic radiology work together on a case-by-case basis to treat each child:

  • Malignant tumors, including:
    • Brain tumors
    • Osteosarcoma (bone cancer)
    • Solid tumors, especially germ cell tumors
    • Ewing sarcoma & Neuroblastoma
  • Leukemia & Lymphoma (Hodgkin's Disease)
  • Hemophilia
  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Thalassemia
  • Immune Hematologic Disorders
  • Vascular Anomalies
  • Bleeding disorders:
    • Thrombophilia - congenital or acquired excessive clotting
    • Thromboembolic Disease - clotting, including arterial, venous thromboses and pulmonary embolism
    • Thrombocytopenias – excessive bleeding, often resulting in removal of spleen
  • Graft versus Host Disease
