Specialized Treatment for Blood Disorders and Blood Cancers

Hematology

Hematology may not be a very well-known specialty, but for the millions of Americans affected by blood disorders or blood cancer, it’s vital to their well-being. Fortunately, highly trained hematologists are available in Central Pennsylvania. If you are diagnosed with a blood disorder or blood cancer, you don’t need to go farther than Penn Highlands Healthcare for your hematology treatment.

What Is Hematology?

Hematology is a specialized branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders relating to blood, bone marrow, and the lymphatic system. This includes problems with red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, bleeding, and clotting. You might see a hematologist if you have anemia, hemophilia, a clotting disorder, or blood-related cancer.

What Types of Cancer Are Treated by Hematologists?

Penn Highlands hematology oncologists treat cancers of the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic system, including leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma. If you are diagnosed with one of these diseases, you will be referred to one of Penn Highlands hematologists for care. Specializing in treating blood-related and lymphatic system cancers, these cancer doctors will develop a customized treatment plan for your condition, which may include chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation, and stem cell transplantation. Your hematology oncologist will be your main doctor throughout your cancer treatment at Penn Highlands.

Because leukemia accounts for nearly a third of childhood cancers, we treat children as well as adults in our cancer hospital.
