Pediatric Hematology/Oncology

About This Specialty

A medical specialty that focuses on evaluating, diagnosing and treating children with blood disease and cancer, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology offers a full spectrum of clinical services.

Hematology is the study of blood diseases, while oncology concentrates on cancer. The two are frequently intertwined because hematological disorders may overlap with oncology—examples include leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell disease.

Oncologists use a variety of tools to diagnose cancer, including:

  • Blood tests
  • Biopsies
  • Computed tomography (CT scans)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Anemia
  • Bone cancer
  • Hemophilia
  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Soft tissue sarcoma
  • Tumors
  • White blood cell disorders
