Pediatric oncologists at UCLA provide outpatient diagnostic, therapeutic, and consultative care to pediatric patients with hematologic or oncologic diseases. The division also offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program for the treatment of these disorders including, if indicated, allogeneic and autologous bone marrow transplantation.
