Dr. Garvin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Garvin "James H. Garvin, MD, PhD is a board-certified pediatric hematologist-oncologist who specializes in the care of young patients with brain tumors, as well as those requiring bone marrow transplantation as treatment for other cancers and disorders. His interest in this field began when he was in medical school after conducting laboratory research in pediatric hematology. Dr. Garvin was drawn to the opportunity to contribute his expertise through patient care and research. 
Today he enjoys bringing treatments based on the latest medical research to patients at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. In addition to caring for children with brain tumors who receive chemotherapy, Dr. Garvin is also a specialist in the management of sickle cell disease, anemia (including aplastic anemia), bone marrow failure, and leukemia. The latter four diseases can often be cured with a bone marrow transplant from a healthy matched donor."
