Hematology at Mount Auburn Hospital

If you or a loved one experiences a blood disorder, turn to Mount Auburn, a Harvard-affiliated hospital. You’ll benefit from knowledgeable, personalized care delivered by board-certified hematologists — doctors who specialize in treating and preventing blood diseases.

Blood Disorders We Treat

Turn to the hematologists at Mount Auburn Hospital when you experience:

  • Anemia (low red cells), Thrombocytopenia (low platelets), or leukopenia (low white blood cells)
  • Leukocytosis, polycythemia, thrombocytosis (elevated blood counts)
  • Blood clots
  • Blood cancers, including chronic leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma
  • Family history of blood disorder or blood clots
  • Hemochromatosis
  • Monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS)

Hematology Services & Treatments

You and your doctor will work together to develop a care plan for your condition. If you have a benign (noncancerous) blood disorder, your treatment may include:

  • Dietary supplements: Increase the amount of iron in your blood
  • Iron infusions: Uses an IV (infusion therapy) to deliver iron directly to your blood
  • Medications: Treat and/or manage your symptoms

If you have chronic leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma, you’ll benefit from comprehensive, multidisciplinary care from our Commission on Cancer (CoC)-accredited cancer program.
