The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at UI Health provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to children and adolescents with cancer, leukemia, sickle cell disease, hemophilia, and other blood disorders.
We are a part of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), the leading pediatric cancer research group in the world. UI Health serves as the lead site for a tri-institutional COG entity that includes the John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County and Rush University Medical Center. Through the COG, we provide access to international pediatric cancer clinical trials, with our patients receiving state of the art cancer care from our multidisciplinary team.
As part of the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at UI Health, our Hematology/Oncology team works to ensure children with sickle disease receive routine diagnostic testing and surveillance to help them transition to healthy, happy adults.
All Ages Welcome!
Childhood Cancer Survivorship Clinic for Pediatrics and Adults: Many cancer survivors have long term side effects and chronic health conditions because of the surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation they received as a child. Childrens Oncology Group recommends that survivors be seen in a specialized long term follow clinic every year to screen for long term side effects.
Our clinic will organize your cancer treatment records into an easy to read document for you and your primary care provider, go over your risk of late effects and chronic health conditions with you and give you a care plan so you know what you need to do every year to stay healthy after cancer treatment. A social worker will meet with you to make sure you have adequate access to financial resources, insurance and education or employment. After your first visit, we will see you yearly so you can enjoy survivorship with the best health possible.
