If your child has a blood disorder, it’s important to have a team of physicians and staff that can support them and help you manage the disease. These often ongoing conditions can be successfully treated with the help of a multidisciplinary team.

Comprehensive Treatment of Blood Disorders

Benign Hematology services include treatment of bleeding disorders, blood clotting disorders, bone marrow failure and disorders of white cells, red cells and platelets. Included in this subspecialty are several programs within our Hematology and Oncology program:

Treatment for sickle cell disease requires frequent visits and monitoring for infections and complications. Our experts provide comprehensive pediatric care to patients from birth to age 21, including access to new therapies, chronic transfusion regimens and stem cell transplants, and specialize in then helping your child transition to adult care.
