About the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology

Dr. Stuart Gold with patient.

The Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology is a part of the Department of Pediatrics and Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at UNC and a member of the Children's Oncology Group, a national consortium of pediatric cancer centers.

Our program has active inpatient and outpatient services. In addition to on-site clinical activities, program members see patients in Wilmington and at the N.C. Children's Specialty Clinic in Raleigh.

Our division specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and management of hematological disorders and malignancies in children and adolescents. We also offer bone marrow transplantation through our combined adult-pediatric bone marrow transplantation program.

We maintain comprehensive clinics in hemophilia and bleeding disorders, oncology, sickle cell disease, general hematology, brain tumors and long-term follow-up. You can learn more about the specific programs and services offered through our division on the Programs and Services page.


Our mission is to treat and cure children and adolescents with cancer and blood diseases who live in North Carolina through participation both in national and locally designed treatment protocols. We believe that the care of children with cancer is a dynamic process based on improving treatments through clinical and laboratory research.
