Who Treats Blood Disorders

Hematology is the medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders. Hematologists are board certified physicians specifically trained in treating blood disorders, including conditions within the red and white blood cells, platelets, lymph nodes, bone marrow, blood vessels, and the spleen.

Blood conditions can be benign or malignant. Common non-cancerous blood disorders include anemiahemophilia, and clotting disorders. While you may not have cancer, your hematologist is also trained as an oncologist, which is why you will come to a cancer center for treatment. Many hematologists are also board certified in internal medicine and oncology.
