Clinical Support Services
Patients with blood disorders receive consultation and treatment for a broad range of benign conditions, such as hemoglobinopathies (sickle cell anemia and thalassemia), hemochromatosis, bleeding and thrombotic disorders (von Willebrand's disease and hemophilia), hypercoagulable states, myeloproliferative disorders, myelodysplasia and anemia, and malignancies such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
The Cancer Care Center at Boston Medical Center cares for patients with malignant and non-malignant blood disorders and cancer. The Center provides diagnostic services, innovative treatments, and comprehensive care to patients by an outstanding, nationally recognized, multidisciplinary team of hematologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, oncology nurses, social workers, and dieticians.
The first step is a consultation with a radiation oncologist who works closely with other physicians and medical professionals to coordinate the best possible care for every patient.
Surgical oncologists provide comprehensive, expert surgical treatment for patients with a broad range of cancers. The team of surgeons, nurses, and support service personnel are among the best in the country, and the treatment approach, facilities, and technology available are state-of-the-art.
Resources for Patients
Cancer Center Support
BMC researchers are finding innovative new ways to treat and cure cancers, including cancers of the breast, lung, colon, prostate, head and neck, blood cells (leukemia and lymphoma), and more.
As our patient, you'll have access to a wide range of clinical trials from both BMC researchers and researchers at other institutions. While we enroll any and all eligible patients in clinical trials, BMC physicians are in particular leaders in the enrollment of under-represented minorities in clinical trials.
