Hematologic Cancer Team

Effective patient care is a team effort. The Hematologic Cancer disease management team combines the skills and expertise of multiple healthcare professionals.

The team meets regularly to discuss the latest diagnostic and treatment information, meaning that each patient benefits from a wide range of expertise and a consistently high standard of care.

Several physicians on your team are likely to be fellowship trained — meaning they received additional, highly specialized education and training.

The Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute Hematologic Cancer Program is led by:

Based on your personal needs, your team can include any of the following experts:

Radiologists: Doctors trained to take and read pictures of areas inside the body, using X-rays, CT scans, MRIs and other imaging technologies. Hematologic malignancies can be evaluated with most imaging technologies. For myeloma, whole‐body MRI (WB‐MRI) is recognized as a highly sensitive test. For other types of cancers, such as lymphoma, a PET scan is preferred. We use the most advanced technological medical equipment, including 3D and digital mammograms

Pathologists: Physicians trained to investigate the cause of disease by reviewing samples and providing fast, accurate reports that are used to diagnose and determine the best course of care.

Medical Oncologists: Treat patients with medications such as chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and, when appropriate, new immunotherapy regimens. You may receive care before surgery or after, as needed. 

Radiation Therapists: Physicians with special training in diagnosing and treating cancer using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and other technologies. At Hartford HealthCare, access to radiation therapy and/or infusion chemotherapy is provided as close to your home as possible.

Clinical Trials: Cancer Institute experts have a long tradition of participating in major studies. They are committed to ongoing clinical research as researchers develop more effective and less toxic, treatments for cancer. Clinical trials can offer treatments that may be the best option for you.

Survivorship: Naturally, after active treatment ends, survivors have concerns about ongoing wellness. Our survivorship program focuses on easing the transition from active treatment to recovery.
