Conditions We Treat

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)

There are several types of Leukemia. Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), also called acute lymphoblastic leukemia, is the most common cancer and the most common leukemia affecting children. It is a cancer that affects the bone marrow and subsequently, the blood. Learn more

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

Acute myeloid leukemia is a leukemia that starts in the bone marrow (the tissue inside the bone where blood is made) and results in the creation of immature white blood cells. Learn more

Aplastic Anemia (AA)

When the bone marrow doesn’t produce enough blood cells, this condition is known as aplastic anemia. Learn more

Brain Tumors

The term brain tumor refers to an unusual growth of tissue seen in the brain irrespective of the nature and cause of the growth. Learn more

Chronic Granulomatous Disease

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is the disorder that develops when phagocyte (one of the body's blood cells) doesn’t function properly. Learn more

Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)

Chronic myelogenous leukemia is a rare cancer of the blood in children where over time, too many immature white blood cells form because of an abnormality in the normal maturation process of the cell. Learn more

Congenital Anemia

Congenital anemia, including Fanconi anemia, is a group of inherited diseases that affect the bone marrow, decreasing production of all types of blood cells. Learn more

Diamond-Blackfan Anemia

Diamond-Blackman anemia is a rare disorder of the bone marrow which fails to produce enough new red blood cells. Learn more

Fanconi Anemia

Fanconi anemia is a rare inherited disorder that involves a wide spectrum of abnormalities involving bone, ears, kidneys, other physical abnormalities. Some of the patients may dvelop bone marrow failure or leukemia. In addition, patients with Fanconi are at a very high risk of developing multiple cancers in their lifetime. Learn more

Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis

The disease is an extreme example of immune system dysfunction, where the body’s own immune system begins to attack important tissues and organs such as the brain, liver and bone marrow. Learn more

Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia

JMML is a rare, serious chronic form of cancer of the blood in children (frequently boys), aged less than 4 years. Learn more

Leukodystrophy

Leukodystrophy refers to a group of rare progressive diseases that affect the white matter of the brain (myelin), causing a slowing or blockage in brain signals. Learn more

Lymphomas

Lymphomas are a type of cancer involving lymphocytes, which are cells within the immune system that help the body fight off infections. Learn more

Metabolic Storage Diseases

Metabolic storage diseases are a fairly large group of rare genetic inherited disorders in which specific enzymes of a child's cell are insufficient. Enzymes help break down certain materials within the cell for proper cell function. Learn more

Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is referred to a group of different types of cancer. But they all impact the bone marrow and prevent it from developing mature, healthy blood cells. Patients have low blood counts and present like Aplastic Anemia. Learn more

Neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a form of cancer that primarily affects children. Among infants, it ranks as the most common form of cancer. The cancer forms in nerve cells called neuroblasts. It usually occurs in the adrenal glands above the kidneys, but can also start anyway along the nerves in the back. Learn more

Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is a rare, dangerous, acquired blood disorder during which unpredictable episodes of blood red cell breakdown occurs, the bone marrow stops making new blood cells and blood clots. Learn more

Polycythemia

Polycythemia is a rare and serious blood disease that causes the bone marrow to produce too many red blood cells (adjusted for race, age, sex and altitude) to circulate in the blood stream. Learn more

Severe Combined Immune Deficiency

Severe combined immune deficiency is a rare genetic birth defect that doesn’t allow the body to develop an immune system, which fights all types of infections. Learn more

Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome

Shwachman-Diamond syndrome is a rare complex disorder that affects a child's bone marrow, pancreas and bones (and sometimes other parts of the body). Learn more

Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle cell disease is a group of familial red blood cell disorders. Sickle cell disease causes the red blood cells to be oddly shaped, and have difficulty flowing through the blood vessels properly which causes them to break up easily resulting in anemia and damage to the organs. Learn more

Thalassemia

Thalassemia is a blood disorder in which the body produces hemoglobin that doesn’t function properly. Learn more
