I am a board-certified pediatric hematologic oncologist who specializes in bone marrow transplantation. I am also the Medical Director of Memorial Sloan Kettering's Pediatric Day Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility where we provide the majority of treatment for children and young adults with cancer in a bright, uplifting setting.
Bone marrow transplantation brings together science and human medicine in an intellectually stimulating way. I educate parents of our patients about the options we can offer their children and advise them on the plan of therapy that we feel is best. It is one of the few fields of medicine where you get so close to the patient and his or her family, and are able to give so much of yourself as a physician.
