Hematology at St. Vincent’s as a subspecialty of internal medicine extends its clinical services and physician expertise to St. Vincent’s cancer care and other areas of care. Hematology itself is concerned with the study of blood and the blood-forming tissue and organs, such as bone marrow and the spleen.
One simple test
By the time we are adults, most of us have at one time or another had what is commonly referred to as blood tests to determine the status of our general health, simply because this vital fluid reveals so much of what is going on in the body. A simple test for cholesterol can reveal a patient’s risk for heart disease, while a complete blood count, or CBC test, can be critical to a diagnosis of serious anemia or infectious disease.
Here at St. Vincent’s, our skilled physicians, cardiologists and oncologists draw on the information yielded in such tests, as well as on other diagnostic measures, to determine and implement the best treatment for a vast number of conditions and diseases. These can range from coronary artery disease as well as thyroid disease, diabetes and other autoimmune and metabolic diseases, to lymphoma and numerous other threats to human health.
