Hematology Oncology Services

UCI Health hematologic oncologists provide expert consultation and treatment for patients with many different types of cancer. These include solid tumor carcinomas, such as colon, breast and prostate, and malignancies of the blood, such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

People diagnosed with cancer typically need a range of medical specialists, treatments and services, all of which are available at the UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is Orange County's only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center.

Our oncologists are highly skilled in the leading-edge treatments and many also participate in clinical trials. Our goal is to provide the best possible care that is tailored to each patient's individual needs.

We are recognized for providing the highest quality care by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) Certification Program, which is an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Malignant blood diseases such as acute and chronic leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other bone marrow disorders often involve a complex treatment plan.

At UCI Health, a team of highly experienced hematologists, surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, nurses, dietitians, pathologists and radiologists work together to provide each patient with the best possible care.

We offer lifesaving treatment options for blood and lymph cancer patients with the launch of Orange County's first adult stem cell transplant and cellular therapy program.

We also offer additional services, such as dietary guidance, pain management, counseling and support groups.

Physicians at UCI Health provide full consultative and treatment services for patients with non-malignant (non-cancerous) disorders of the blood. We are the most comprehensive resource of this type in Orange County.

  • Anemias
