You will be followed closely by your physician who will schedule your office visits and perform laboratory tests as needed.
The Hematology Laboratory is a fully accredited laboratory within the Siteman Cancer Center supported by the Division of Hematology at Washington University. Our laboratory is staffed with professionally trained, certified technologists. They have expertise in the analysis of blood to provide the hematologists, oncologists, and other providers with information to make decisions regarding patient treatment in a timely manner. The laboratory provides a critical link to the physicians and health care providers and is an integral component to the health care team.
You may also require chemotherapy treatments. Since most chemotherapy treatments do not require admission to the hospital, the Siteman Cancer Center has a designated area for patients to receive their treatments. Patients can receive chemotherapy and other treatments, including transfusions, in a comfortable environment equipped with recliners, beds and televisions. Our treatment area is staffed by experienced oncology nurses.
