Cancer and Blood Disorders  

Overview

The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, led by Sujit Sheth, MD, provides treatment for children with a wide range of congenital and acquired blood disorders and cancers. Consisting of a team of pediatric specialists, the Division offers disease-specific programs, supported by basic and clinical research, to improve management strategies and enhance the understanding of these childhood blood diseases. The Division also educates young physicians and scientists in the field of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology and provides an ACGME-accredited fellowship program together with the Department of Pediatrics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The Division's clinical faculty are board-certified Pediatric Hematologists/Oncologists. Our expertise in the areas of hemophilia, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, thalassemia, sickle cell disease and the childhood leukemias and cancers is internationally-recognized. In addition, the Division's research scientists conduct basic research in the Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation laboratories in the fields of iron metabolism, immunology, hemophilia, cellular oncology and beta globin gene transfer.

We offer state-of-the-art comprehensive medical treatments for blood disorders such as anemias, neutropenias, thrombocytopenias, disorders of iron metabolism, coagulation and bleeding, as well as childhood leukemias and cancers such as lymphomas, Hodgkin's disease, Wilm's tumor, neuroblastoma, and osteogenic sarcoma. Psychosocial support for these children and their families is also provided with on-site social work and genetic counseling services. Nursing services, including that of a thalassemia and oncology nurse practitioner and infusion nurses, assist in the care and administration of medications, blood products, infusions and chemotherapy.
