Hematological (Leukemia/Lymphoma) Cancers

Our hematologists/medical oncologists evaluate and treat patients with malignant diseases (cancers) and hematologic disorders (involving the blood and blood-forming organs), including:

  • Bleeding disorder (including low platelet levels, or easy bruising or bleeding)
  • Blood-related disorder
  • Blood and marrow disorder (including leukemia)
  • Cancer or malignant disease (rare and common)
  • Myeloproliferative disorder (excessive production of blood cells and platelets)
  • Myelodysplastic syndrome (ineffective generation of blood cells)

Our physicians and staff work closely with surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other specialists to:

  • Help patients understand their diagnosis
  • Coordinate care with radiation oncology and surgery for the best possible treatment plan
  • Develop individualized treatment plans (ranging from curative to palliative care)
