Blood Cancer

Hematology Services

We provide the highest quality care to patients with blood cancer, including the latest therapies and stem cell transplantation. With advances in medical knowledge and treatment methods, many blood disorders are successfully treated and managed.

Blood cancers come from bone marrow or the immune system. Bone marrow, a spongy material inside bones, is responsible for making blood cells including white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Each blood cell has a different role in the body. White blood cells fight off infection. Red blood cells deliver oxygen to tissues. Platelets help the body to clot.

A medical hematologist oncologist leads each patient's treatment plan. Radiation oncology and surgical oncology may participate in supportive roles. Treatments can include chemotherapy, oral medication, biotherapy, or immunotherapy.

We partner with New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH) on clinical trials and research.
