Hematology Oncology

Our pediatric hematology/oncology specialists are dedicated to state-of-the art care for children and adolescents with cancer and blood disorders from Oklahoma and the region.  This is made possible through our mission of providing comprehensive acute care and long-term follow-up for patients, and educating patients, families, health care professionals and the community.  Another mission is encouraging patients to participate in research that advances our understanding of the diseases and improves patient care and future outcomes.  

     Another advantage of our services is the use of the latest investigational therapies as well as conventional treatments specializing in specifically treating cancer in children and teenagers.  They consider the effects of chemotherapy, radiation and other therapies on a child's growing body and make every effort to minimize any negative effects these treatments may have during important developmental years.
