The Hematologic Oncology Department at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) provides advanced medical therapies for patients with blood-related diseases, including leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
Our hematologic oncology team has expertise in treating hematologic diseases using advanced technology and a personalized approach. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic tests to develop an individualized treatment plan that's tailored to your needs.
Helping you maintain your quality of life
Our hematology oncology team will work with the rest of your care team to support you throughout your treatment.
For example, your dietitian may recommend a healthy diet to nutritionally fortify your body, and your naturopathic clincian may recommend natural therapies to help reduce side effects, such as neuropathy. Your rehabilitation therapist may recommend safe levels of physical activity to help you stay active and independent.
Additionally, your pain management practitioner may use various techniques to help alleviate discomfort and control bone and neuropathic pain, while your mind-body therapist may provide counseling and relaxation techniques.
The hematologic oncology team at CTCA in Metro Atlanta
The doctors in the hematologic oncology program at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Atlanta, are dedicated to fighting the wide variety of blood cancers using advanced and innovative medical techniques. We offer an array of treatments, including autologous transplant services, for patients with newly diagnosed blood cancer and relapsed/refractory blood cancer.
At the same time, by addressing the side effects of cancer and its treatment with supportive care therapies, our care team strives to help patients reduce treatment interruptions and improve their quality of life. In addition to conventional treatment approaches, your care team may help you determine whether you qualify for one of our ongoing clinical trials, which may offer access to new, innovative treatments for your type of cancer.
