Diagnosis and Treatment of Blood Diseases and Clotting Disorders
Duke’s hematology program is a leader in the Southeast for diagnosing, evaluating, treating and managing all types of blood, bleeding and clotting disorders. We conduct research to better understand and treat anemia and other blood disorders and partner with Duke specialists to provide the most advanced and comprehensive care in the region.
Comprehensive Care for Blood Disorders
If you have anemia or other blood disorder, our specialists deliver expert and coordinated care. We offer treatment for a variety of conditions, including anemia, sickle cell disease, platelet disorders, white blood cell disorders, hemophilia, thrombosis, Von Willebrand disease, and blood cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
Choose Duke for your care because we offer:
