Hematology/Oncology, also called medical oncology, deals with the diagnosis, treatment and management of people who have cancer. The specialty focuses on treating cancer with chemotherapy, a treatment using chemical agents that destroy cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be administered through a vein, by mouth, via an injection, or applied to the skin. It can be used alone or in combination with other treatments, including surgery and/or radiation therapy. Hematology focuses specifically on diagnosing and treating disorders of the blood and bone marrow.
Penn Hematology/Oncology at the Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital offers comprehensive medical oncology and chemotherapy services provided by oncologists who practice exclusively in Chester County and stay abreast of the latest advances in the field. As part of the community, our physicians come to know patients and their families on a more personal level, and are able to provide special understanding and support when patients are facing issues and concerns.
In addition to hematologist/oncologists, our team extends to neurosurgeons, thoracic surgeons and nurse practitioners.
Penn Hematology/Oncology has three offices to serve you in West Chester, Exton, and Kennett Square, PA.
