Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation

The Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplantation at New York Medical College consists of board-certified pediatric hematologist-oncologists, pediatric oncology nurses,  full-time social workers,  clinical research associates, a Ph.D., and research associates in our molecular biology lab. The pediatric oncologists and hematologists are committed to providing the most innovative therapies for childhood cancer and blood disorders, as well as developing and perfecting new treatments for preventing these diseases in the future. Both cancer and blood diseases represent a complex challenge.

The Faculty Practice of the Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplantation is part of Children’s and Women’s Physicians of Westchester.

Our dedicated pediatric hematologists and oncologists provide care for children with all forms of cancer and blood diseases, including leukemias, brain tumors, lymphomas, Hodgkin’s disease, neuroblastoma, Wilm’s tumor, liver tumors, histiocytosis, germ cell tumors, and other rare types of tumors. Our active participation in the Children’s Oncology Group Studies makes it possible to provide the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art treatment regimens to children with any form of cancer, common or rare.
