Treatment options

Your specific care path depends on your unique condition. Even with the same diagnosis, every person’s needs are different. That’s why it’s critical that your treatment is truly tailored to you.

We offer the latest therapies for the full spectrum of blood disorders, and our specialists have the expertise to create a comprehensive care plan that’s customized just for you. Your treatment may include any of the following:

  • Blood transfusion, where donated blood is provided to you through a thin tube placed in a vein in your arm. We offer simple transfusions and exchange transfusions.
  • Replacement therapy, where we regularly infuse your blood with missing proteins – or “clotting factors” – so that it can clot.
  • Anticoagulant medicines (blood thinners), which can reduce the risk of developing blood clots.
  • Medicines for sickle cell disease, including hydroxyurea and L-glutamine, that can help reduce the number of pain crises and hospitalizations.
  • Bone marrow transplant, also known as stem cell transplant, which replaces diseased cells with healthy blood stem cells. We offer the latest approaches, including autologous (self), full-match and half-matched transplants, at the region’s only comprehensive transplant and cellular therapy center.

Clinical trials for blood disorders

Clinical trials give you more opportunities to find the best treatment for you. As a leader in hematology research, our extensive clinical trials program gives you access to the most innovative treatments before they’re widely available.

Our program includes trials for non-cancerous blood disorders, and we work hard to connect every interested and eligible patient with a clinical trial that may be effective for their specific condition.
