Treatments for Anemia in Children

Your Child's Care Begins Here

Anemia is one of the more common blood disorders, but when it affects your child, finding the right treatment becomes your primary focus.

Our pediatric hematology specialists bring years of experience to the treatment of childhood anemia. We can recommend specific medications if vitamin or iron deficiency is a problem. If your child's condition is more serious, we offer the latest transfusion techniques and a dedicated bone marrow transplant team for kids. We can help your child avoid potential complications from anemia, so he or she can enjoy a more active and healthy life.

Treatments We Provide

Blood/Bone Marrow Transplant

Blood/bone marrow transplantation can use stem cells to restore blood cell production. Our pediatric blood and bone marrow transplant program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy. This FACT designation means that we meet rigorous national quality standards for patient care and cell therapy treatments.

Blood Transfusion

Some chronic forms of anemia may require blood transfusions to increase the red blood cell count.


Some children with anemia may need special iron supplements. These are administered in liquid or pill form, or, rarely, by infusions in our clinic.
