Blood is, perhaps, the most vital of your body’s components. It is responsible for transporting nutrients and fluids to the entire body, providing it with oxygen and energy. A problem with your blood can result in damage to the entire body. It can be confusing and intimidating trying to fight a disease that moves throughout the body, but with a dedicated team of hematologists helping, you can improve your quality of life and possibly eliminate the disorder completely.

Hematologic Conditions We Treat

Our hematologists and hematopathologists regularly care for patients dealing with:

  • Anemias. Common blood disorders characterized by a deficiency of red blood cells or hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood.
  • Thalassemia. Inherited disorders that affect how the body makes hemoglobin.
  • Bleeding/clotting disorders. Blood clotting is your body’s way of preventing blood loss when you suffer from an injury. Unfortunately, blood clots can sometimes occur even without an injury, which inhibits the body’s ability to transport blood through the veins.
  • Hemochromatosis. This is a hereditary disorder that stimulates iron absorption and creates an excess of toxins in the body.
  • Polycythemia vera. A rare disorder, polycythemia vera increases the rate at which blood cells are produced, thickening the blood and inhibiting circulation. This condition can result in strokes and organ damage.
  • Thrombocythemia. When the bone marrow creates too many platelets. Platelets are responsible for blood clotting, and having too many can result in too little or too much clotting.
  • Leukemia.There are several different types of leukemia. You will need to work with a capable oncology and hematology team in order to find the best treatment for you.
  • Lymphomas. Another form of blood cancer that begins in the lymph nodes and affects the body’s white blood cells.

Whatever type of blood disorder you are dealing with, our capable hematology team can work with you to develop a treatment plan. The medical understanding of blood and blood disorders had come a long way in recent years, and our team has stayed on top of all the latest developments in order to provide our patients with the most effective, evidence-based treatments.
