Our Approach to Blood Cancer Treatment

Our blood cancer specialists all see patients at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. By combining their expertise and experience, they can provide the best care possible—starting at your first appointment. Other highlights of our blood disorder care include:

Experienced Specialists

Our hematology and oncology specialists have decades of experience caring for people affected by blood disorders and blood cancers. They have the knowledge and specialized training to successfully treat these conditions.

Advanced Treatments

We offer a new type of immunotherapy called CAR T-cell therapy. This treatment uses a patient’s immune system to attack cancer cells. We are also one of only two programs in the U.S. offering bloodless bone marrow transplants to Jehovah's Witnesses.

We use the latest conditioning regimens and supportive care measures to improve outcomes. These evidence-backed protocols prepare your body for a successful transplant and prevent complications.
