The physicians and medical professionals at Sturdy Hematology &
Oncology Associates are committed to providing the highest quality health care to our patients.
The following are some of the services we offer: office consultations, bone marrow biopsies, phlebotomy,
and we treat all ranges of cancer as well as blood disorders.
Hematology is the medical specialty that focuses on blood disorders. Included in this area are both benign blood disorders and blood cancers. Examples of commonly treated disorders include leukemias, lymphomas, anemia, and clotting disorders.
Oncology is the branch of medicine that treats cancer. Medical oncologists are specifically trained to administer chemotherapy as medicine for the treatment of cancer. This usually involves solid tumors but there is overlap with hematologic malignancies. Many of these specialists are trained in both hematology and oncology. Cancer care often uses a multidisciplinary approach to treat cancer and involves medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nurses, and nutritionists.
At Sturdy Memorial Hospital, our oncology team is comprised of well-regarded, experienced physicians and nurses who have dedicated themselves to helping people deal with the unexpected changes brought on by cancer. Our physicians and nurses have access to the most advanced technologies used by cancer professionals today and are constantly incorporating the latest treatment protocols into their practices to ensure patients receive the highest level of care.
