The Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and management of hematological disorders and malignancies in children and adolescents.
Using a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care, the division's physicians, nurses and other clinical staff maintain comprehensive clinics in hemophilia and bleeding disorders, oncology, sickle cell disease, general hematology, brain tumors and long-term follow-up.
The pediatric oncology program is part of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and is a member of the Children’s Oncology Group, a consortium of leading pediatric institutions in the U.S. and abroad, giving patients access to the most current therapeutic approaches and investigational drugs.
The division operates numerous daily clinics for diagnosing and treating childhood cancer in the pediatric hematology-oncology outpatient clinic, located in N.C. Cancer Hospital. The division also serves patients at an outpatient clinic in Wilmington and at the N.C. Children's Specialty Clinic in Raleigh.
The division is one of the regional comprehensive diagnostic and treatment centers for hemophilia and actively participates as one of the ten national sickle cell centers. Clinical trials give the division's patients access to new blood clotting factor therapies and treatment approaches.
