Cancer and conditions treated include:
Evaluation & Diagnosis
Each patient receives personal attention from the Malignant Hematology Multidisciplinary Team. During your initial visit to the new Dresner Clinic for Hematologic Malignancies and Stem Cell Transplantation at the Karmanos Cancer Center, a physician will review your medical records, medical history, and review your x-rays and pathology slides. The team meets regularly to discuss patient care issues and refine individual patient treatment plans. Depending on your diagnosis, our Malignant Hematology team may discuss your case with our Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplant Team to ensure the proper diagnosis and treatment plan is determined.
