Types of cancers and treatment options
Our doctors have experience with a wide range of blood and lymph system cancers and treatments. Some of these include:
Most blood cancer treatments are given on an outpatient basis, but we also have a dedicated inpatient unit for patients receiving bone marrow transplants. This allows us to carefully monitor patients undergoing more complex treatments.
We also participate in a number of clinical trials to test new treatments. This offers patients advanced treatments that haven’t yet been released to the general public.
