Hematology


Specializing in the diagnosis and management of  hematological disorders, the Hematology Practice at Children’s Hospital Central California provides consultations 24 hours a day. We provide care for a large pediatric patient population with iron deficiencies, Thalassemia and Fanconi Anemia. We are also treating a handful of Diamond-Blackfan Anemia patients. Our team provides blood transfusions, platelet transfusions and immune-globulin infusions onsite for our pediatric patients who require these regimens.

Our Hemophilia Treatment Center is involved in the Center for Disease Control’s ongoing Universal Data Collection project, which benefits our bleeding disorder population. The Center has participated in the blood safety and surveillance study since 2001. Children’s Hematology Department has partnered with Children’s Hospital Oakland to offer some of the newest treatments available for thalassemia, sickle cell disease, and iron-overload.
