I study disorders of the bone marrow and bone marrow failure syndromes. I also see some leukemias and lymphomas and other blood malignancies. Duke offers a very personalized individualized level of care to each patient. Nobody is the same so we take the whole patient we listen to them and we offer our best recommendations for treatment options. We offer some of the latest treatment options that are available usually in the setting of a clinical trial. If not we offer the latest advancement in the field. When I was going through medical school molecular biology was the new field. Everything was being described as a new cancer-causing gene. And to me that was so appealing were going to figure out what causes cancer and new ways to treat it. Thats what really brought me into the hematology oncology world things were being discovered that were new and exciting and hopefully would lead to new treatment options. Duke offers an extremely high standard of care. Though were not always successful and the disease sometimes wins our goal is to give the patients the best possible care.
