Hematology/Oncology

Physicians in the Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology provide diagnosis and treatment of hematologic diseases and cancer on an outpatient and inpatient basis. Specific cancer treatments include chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radioactive isotopes, plasmapheresis, cytophoresis, and other modalities. Special emphasis is placed on emotional and nutritional support during the treatment of malignancies. A state-of-the-art bone marrow transplant unit provides autologous bone marrow transplants for certain cases of adult acute leukemias, Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphomas, breast cancer, and certain solid tumors.
