Treatments and Procedures
The expert team at Mount Sinai Doctors-Staten Island, Cancer is skilled in providing the best available treatments, including chemotherapy infusion, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and benign hematology services, such as immunoglobulin and iron infusion.
Hematology deals with diseases associated with the blood and blood-forming organs. Blood disorders can affect the production of blood and its components, such as blood cells, blood proteins, and the mechanisms of coagulation. Our physicians draw on the best available therapies to treat patients with various hematologic diagnoses, including anemia, reduced blood platelet count (immune thrombocytopenia purpura or ITP) or , myelodysplastic syndrome, lymphoma, and leukemia, as well as clotting and other blood disorders.
We offer a number of hematology services, such as:
- Bone marrow biopsies and aspirates
- Common lab tests, including complete blood count(CBC) and clotting (prothrombin) time CBCs and PT (INR)
- Intravenous infusions of iron for patients with iron deficiency anemia
- The monitoring of blood clotting for patients on anticoagulants through our Coumadin® (warfarin) program
Our New Jersey location provides a state-of-the-art infusion center, equipped with a GEMFREE flow hood and LYNX mobile chemotherapy inventory management system. Our most advanced treatment suite offers a separate media room, where family members and loved ones can pass the time in comfort.
