Patient Care

Penn Hematology/Oncology is a nationally recognized leader in the research, diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancers and blood-related disorders, ranging from the most common to the most complex.

Penn hematologists and medical oncologists are part of multidisciplinary teams whose approach to cancer and blood disorders is to treat the entire individual, not just the disease. Patients benefit from a team of experts across specialties working together to determine the best course of treatment in a supportive, compassionate environment.

Penn hematologists and medical oncologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of cancer and blood disorders including:

  • Acute and chronic leukemia
  • Amyloidosis
  • Coagulation problems including hemophilia
  • Disorders of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Myelodysplasia
  • Myeloma
  • The full range of adult cancers (solid tumors)

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Care

Penn medical oncologists work closely with other specialists to provide patients with comprehensive, integrated care. They work side-by-side with other team members including physicians and nurses specializing in surgical oncology, radiation oncology, gynecologic oncology, urology, radiology and pathology as well as other medical subspecialties to create personalized medical treatment plans for every patient.

Penn hematologists/oncologists are also a part of Penn's Abramson Cancer Center, a comprehensive cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute and rated as "exceptional" in its most recent peer review.
