Hematologic Cancers 
 
 
 
Treatments for Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma

Specialists in hematology/oncology provide evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for a variety of neoplastic diseases including leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma as well as for solid tumors.

Hahnemann performed one of the region's first Bone Marrow Transplant in 1976 and the program continues to employ this treatment modality for many hematologic diseases.  Types of bone marrow transplants performed include allogeneic (sibling), autologous (same), peripheral blood stem cell and unrelated donor transplants.  A mini-transplant program with abbreviated conditioning regiments for older patients with hematologic malignancies is offered.

The bone marrow transplant team includes attending physicians, oncology fellows, medical residents, nursing, pharmacists, transplant coordinators and other support caregivers.  The program is part of the National Marrow Donor Program, as both a transplant and a harvesting procurement site.  Through this program, marrow transplants are possible from volunteer unrelated donors for patients.
