Oncologists in the Division of Hematology and Neoplastic Diseases work closely with physicians from virtually every specialty at Westchester Medical Center in the care of patients with cancer. New pharmacologic, immunologic and biological therapies and gene therapies are studied to determine their potential for preventing and treating cancers. Qualified patients may be enrolled in cutting-edge clinical cancer research studies and receive the most advanced treatment. Being involved in research programs allows patients to benefit from the expertise of the Westchester Oncology faculty.

 

Two full-time hematologists with special expertise in benign and malignant hematologic disorders operate a general hematology outpatient clinic and an active inpatient service while conducting clinical research on the latest therapeutic advances. Patients are treated for various cytopenias, coagulation disorders, anemia, porphyria, thalassemias, thrombotic disorders and other benign and malignant hematologic diseases. Hematologic care is given for plasmapheresis, cytopheresis, chemotherapy, component therapy for bleeding disorders and anticoagulation for thromboembolic disorders.

 

The Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship currently has eight enrolled fellows who rotate through specialized services including Solid Tumor, Leukemia and Lymphoma, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant and Hematology. Fellows carry out significant research and have a record of multiple publications. Additional rotations are offered in Transfusion Medicine, Radiation Medicine and Immunopathology. Community hematology and medical oncology are provided at affiliated institutions.
