Hematology Clinic

The Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio offers a unique hematology multi-disciplinary team approach to patients. CTRC is home to the only academic hematology service in South Texas.

Our teams of lymphoma, myeloma and leukemia experts will give you undivided attention and the full benefit of their extensive skill. We work together to ensure you receive the very best care and access to a very active state-of-the-art research program. Many drugs and therapies that now are standard care for hematological (blood) malignancies were developed at the CTRC.

We offer the most advanced treatments for every type of hematological malignancy. These include:

  • Hodgkin's lymphomas
  • Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Waldenström's macroglobulinemia
  • B-cell and T-cell lymphomas
  • Small cleaved-cell lymphoma
  • Acute and chronic leukemia
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
  • Myeloproliferative disease (MPD)
  • Some types of lymphoma (lymphoblastic lymphoma, splenic lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma, large granular lymphocyte leukemia/lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma)
  • Rare blood disorders, including hairy cell leukemia and aplastic anemia
  • Unusual or difficult cases

At the CTRC, we strive to provide care for the whole person, not just the disease. We offer support and wellness services geared to meet each patient's individual needs. CTRC is the only NCI-designated cancer center in South Texas, offering patients access to clinical trials that cannot be found anywhere else. If you have been diagnosed with a hematological malignancy, or if the cancer has returned, we can help.
