About the Division

Who we are and how we accomplish our mission: A note from the Chief

 The Division of Hematology/Oncology provide expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of blood disorders and malignant diseases. The Hemology/Oncology division is a team of doctors, researchers and staff who participate in specialized patient care and research programs in the areas of hematologic malignancies, thrombosis, bleeding disorders, sickle cell anemia, bone marrow transplantation, and solid tumors. Interdisciplinary oncology clinics and conferences are held weekly in the areas of breast cancer, thoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, sarcoma, neuro-oncology, melanoma, and head and neck malignancies. Centers which are central to the research and translational missions of the Division include the Center for Cancer Research, and the Center for Sickle Cell Disease.

We recognize that the cure of patients with cancer often requires careful coordination with other specialists, including surgeons and radiation oncologists. Team cancer care is at the heart of our efforts, accessible to all communities in Memphis and surrounding areas.
