Blood is essential for our bodies to function, so it can be scary to be told that there is something wrong with your child's blood cells. Know that your child is in good hands: our pediatric hematologists specialize in diagnosing and treating children's blood disorders. We're proud to offer a federally recognized comprehensive hemophilia treatment center and multidisciplinary clinics for children with bleeding disorders and with sickle cell disease. Together, we'll create a care plan specific to your child's unique needs.
Our pediatric hematology/oncology team is led by a dedicated group of board-certified physicians with expertise in pediatric hematology/oncology, internal medicine and pediatrics. As a teaching hospital, physicians are sometimes accompanied by fellows, residents or medical students. We work closely with colleagues from many specialties across Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.
