Anemias and Other Blood Diseases

Pediatric hematologist/oncologist Jennifer McNeer, MD, provides an introduction to childhood blood disorders and how these conditions are diagnosed and treated at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital.

Our pediatric hematologists provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and comprehensive treatment for all types of blood disorders that affect children. We provide proven, conventional treatments as well as investigational therapies for anemias, hemophilia, bleeding or clotting disorders, white blood cells problems, and bone marrow failure.

We go to great strides to help our patients "be kids or teens"--despite having a blood disorder. One way we do this is by keeping hospitalization to a minimum. Many blood abnormalities can be fully evaluated and treated in our outpatient areas. Whenever possible, children and teens receive blood transfusions and other treatment in our day hospital or outpatient clinic. Comer Children's also has a very close relationship with La Rabida Children’s Hospital, where physicians specialize in helping children with chronic illnesses, including sickle cell anemia.
