Our internationally recognized pediatric hematologists/oncologists and hematopathologists are world leaders in diagnosing and treating all types of pediatric blood cancers. In addition to treating lymphomas and leukemias, our pediatric hematologists/oncologists also treat histiocytosis, which is not a form of cancer but shares some of the characteristics of cancer and is often treated by pediatric hematologist/oncologists using some of the same therapies.
