Malignant blood diseases such as acute and chronic leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other bone marrow disorders often involve a complex treatment plan.
At UC Irvine Health, a team of highly experienced hematologists, surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, nurses, dietitians, pathologists and radiologists work together to provide each patient with the best possible care.
The Hematology/Oncology physicians are affiliated with UCLA Health Systems for bone marrow transplantation procedures. We provide pre- and post-transplant services at the cancer center to minimize travel for bone marrow transplantation patients from Orange County.
We also offer additional services, such as dietary guidance, pain management, counseling and support groups.
Physicians at UC Irvine Health provide full consultative and treatment services for patients with non-malignant (non-cancerous) disorders of the blood. We are the most comprehensive resource of this type in Orange County.
Among the many disorders treated are:
- Platelet disorders
- Disorders of the blood clotting systems
- White blood cell disorders
- Disorders of iron metabolism
