Pediatric Hematology / Oncology


Hematology is the medical field that diagnoses and treats diseases of the blood, bone marrow, and blood-making organs in our body; oncology is the field that treats cancers and tumors. Pediatric hematology/oncology deals with diagnosing, treating and managing these diseases, cancers and tumors in children and teens.

Diagnosing and managing blood disorders in children and adolescents require particular care and skill because it deals with disease management during their crucial growth and development phase, unlike in fully developed adults.

American Hospital Dubai's Pediatric Hematology & Oncology Center offers world-class care and expertise for infants, children and adolescents up to 18 by specialists who understand the complexities of rapidly changing physical, emotional and physiological changes and the treatment and care each growth stage requires.

They provide evidence-based treatment at every stage of pediatric medicine, ensuring the child receives targeted care based on their unique needs and age-and-stage-specific requirements.
