At the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), we offer treatment for diseases of the blood, both cancerous and non-cancerous.

Our physicians have expertise in several benign blood diseases. This includes management of bleeding diatheses, evaluation of clotting disorders and treatment of sickle cell disease. Many of these conditions are inherited and are present at birth. However, they can occur later in life.

We treat patients for a variety of blood diseases. At UMMC, patients with sickle cell disease receive care from a team of diverse healthcare experts guided by the patient's hematologist.

Pediatric patients with blood conditions are treated at the University of Maryland Children's Hospital, while adult patients are evaluated by UMMC's hematologists.

In addition, UMMC's hematologists who specialize in providing care for adult sickle cell patients actively conduct clinical research with the goal of identifying better treatments for patients living with this condition.

Blood cancers, such as leukemias and lymphomas, are treated by our hematologists at the UM Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center.
