Hematology

Temple hematologists treat anemias, bleeding disorders, thromboembolic (clotting) disorders and hematological malignancies (blood and bone marrow cancers). 

We work closely with the Sol Sherry Thrombosis Research Center, which conducts frontline research on blood clots and bleeding disorders. Our physicians – some of whom are considered experts in their field – participate in clinical research at the Sol Sherry Thrombosis Research Center. This research helps the team develop a deeper understanding of bleeding and clotting disorders, and paves the way for new therapies to help patients with these disorders.
