Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology

Our team of Board-certified pediatric hematologists/oncologists provide comprehensive care for pediatric, adolescent, and young adult patients with blood disorders and cancer, from birth through age 21. 
We treat young patients with a wide range of conditions including leukemias, lymphomas, solid tumors, bone malignancies, and brain tumors as well blood disorders such as iron deficiency, sickle cell anemia, thalassemias, platelet disorders, white blood cell disorders, bone marrow failure syndromes and coagulopathies. 
Our Division is an active member of the University of Maryland’s Greenebaum Cancer Center, which is designated by the National Cancer Institute, and Children’s Oncology Group. Participation allows pediatric patients with cancer to receive access to state-of-the art clinical trials being conducted nationally. 
Our physicians work alongside nurse practitioners and chemotherapy-certified nursing staff as well as social workers and child life specialists aimed at preserving normalcy during treatment. Our clinical team is known for building strong and lasting relationships with patients and families.
