Blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma primarily affect the production and function of your blood cells. The Hematology/Oncology program at Hahnemann University Hospital provides evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for these neoplastic diseases, as well as for solid tumors.
A History of Cancer Success
In 1976, Hahnemann performed one of the region’s first Bone Marrow Transplants. The program continues to employ this technique for hematologic diseases. Types of bone marrow transplants that Hahnemann performs include allogeneic (sibling), autologous (same), peripheral blood stem cell and unrelated donor transplants. We also offer a mini-transplant program for older patients with hematologic malignancies.
The bone marrow transplant program at Hahnemann is part of the National Marrow Donor Program as both a transplant and harvesting site. The donor program makes marrow transplants possible from volunteer unrelated donors for patients. Our bone marrow transplant team includes attending physicians, oncology fellows, medical residents, nurses, pharmacists, transplant coordinators and other support caregivers.
