Children's Health Service Hematology-Oncology
Director: Barkat Hooda MD
We provide comprehensive care for infants, children, and adolescents with cancer and blood disorders. We work with a team of nurses, surgeons, intensivists, radiation oncologists, child life
staff, patient advocates, nutritionists, and other allied health personnel to provide your child with the finest evaluation and management of hematologic and malignant
disorders of infancy and childhood.
Major diagnoses include:
- brain tumors,
- solid tumors,
- bone marrow failure syndromes,
- bleeding and clotting disorders,
- in addition to supportive care services such as transfusions.
Chemotherapy and transfusions are provided to our patients using specialized intravascular access devices/ports in an inpatient or outpatient setting.
We care for children at our family-centered, multidisciplinary clinics in League City and Galveston. If your child requires inpatient care, John Sealy Children's Hospital provides state-of-the-art multidisciplinary clinical care and the emotional support that is essential during the treatment of such complex medical conditions. We provide 24/7 on-call faculty support; patients requiring after-hours care can be seen at our Clear Lake and the League City Campus 24-hour Emergency Room or our Galveston Level I Trauma Center.
