Oncologists in the hematologic oncology department at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Atlanta, diagnose and treat cancers of the blood system. Hematologic oncologists at CTCA® Atlanta are doctors who focus on diagnosing and treating blood cancers and blood-related disorders, including leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, anemia, clotting disorders, hemophilia and sickle cell disease. Several years of additional training and education prepare our hematologic oncologists to address the concerns faced by patients with blood cancers and disorders.
Based on your individual needs, our hematologic oncologists at our Atlanta hospital will work closely with you to recommend treatments designed for you and your specific cancer. The type of treatment recommended by your hematologic oncologist may depend on many factors, including the type of cancer, stage of cancer and past medical history. For some patients, a stem cell transplant may be an option. A stem cell transplant infuses healthy stem cells into the body with the goal of helping to stimulate new bone marrow growth, suppress the disease and reduce the possibility of a recurrence. This procedure is designed to help the recipient grow new stem cells that function normally.
