Improving the lives of patients with pediatric cancer and blood diseases

Welcome to Pediatric Hematology

The Pediatric Hematology section at Stanford University and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital is focused on all aspects of non-malignant hematology in children. Hematology is comprised of four programs: Thalassemia and Sickle Cell, Histiocytic Disorders, Bone Marrow Failure, and Hemostasis and Thrombosis. Currently, the section consists of six full-time faculty members. The faculty are engaged in all aspects of the mission of the Division: we provide education, clinical care, and participate in research in the area of pediatric hematology.

The pediatric hematology section is most known for its contribution and commitment to educating trainees of all levels, including medical and nursing students, residents, and fellows. Additionally, we provide comprehensive clinical care to all children with non-malignant hematologic disorder and continue to regularly grow in numbers of new patients referred to our center. A pediatric hematology clinical service has existed for several years, and covers specialized clinics, outpatient and inpatient consultations, and night calls, allowing for the most up-to-date care for our pediatric hematology patients and those who are caring for them. Finally, our faculty are engaged in numerous clinical and translational studies, both local and multi-center, and are looking to increase basic science research activities.
