Barnabas Health Medical Group offers expert diagnosis and treatment of
all types of cancers and blood disorders.
Our hematology and oncology specialists combine compassionate care with
leading-edge techniques, to help you achieve your best-possible quality
of life – both during and after treatment. Our full-time pharmacist,
social worker and nurse navigator further ensure comprehensive, accessible
care. We work with other Barnabas specialists as well, to create your
personalized evaluation and treatment plans.
We diagnose and treat the following conditions:
- Cancer in any part of the body
- Blood-related malignancies, including leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and
myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative diseases
- Other blood disorders, including anemia, thalassemia, low blood count,
blood clots, and blood-related auto-immune conditions, among others
- Bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, low platelet counts and von Willebrand disease
Chemotherapy is drug therapy that can kill cancer cells or stop them from
multiplying. With more than 100 chemotherapy medications available today,
we customize each patient’s treatment based on the cancer type,
treatment goals, patient’s response, and the most current research.
We also offer monoclonal antibody drugs, among the newest treatments for
a range of cancers.
Infusion therapy is treatment provided directly into the bloodstream through
a needle inserted in a vein in the forearm or hand. Infusion therapy can
treat cancer, cancer-related pain, infections, dehydration, hemophilia,
immune deficiencies and many other conditions. Our infusion areas feature
comfortable recliners, so patients may relax while they receive treatments
or laboratory testing.
Biological treatments are therapies that use living organisms, substances
from such organisms, or manmade versions of these substances. For example,
some vaccines and bacteria stimulate the body’s immune system to
attack cancer cells.
Supportive care helps patients and families cope with all aspects of cancer,
from diagnosis to post-treatment rehabilitation. Our supportive care includes
prevention and reduction of adverse effects from cancer and its treatment,
including physical and psychological issues.
We provide a wide range of information to help you make the best decisions
about your care, guide your diagnostic and treatment plan, connect with
support services and live as healthfully as possible.
Clinical trials are research studies that test new treatments. We are
involved in numerous clinical trials that enable our patients to receive
promising new therapies and contribute to scientific understanding.
