Solid organ and bone marrow transplant recipients, as well as those with hematologic malignancies, are particularly susceptible to infections. Their immune systems are suppressed either due to treatments they receive or as a result of their underlying medical conditions. Often, they require specialized care.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, our physicians provide compassionate care to prevent, diagnosis and manage infectious diseases in transplant recipients and patients with hematologic malignancies. Our infectious disease experts collaborate with oncology and transplant specialists, ensuring patients receive comprehensive and coordinated care.
We provide pre-transplant consultations for:
• Patients with hematologic malignancies • Solid organ transplants • Ventricular assist devices • Bone marrow transplants
Our team also provides post-transplant infectious disease care.
As one of the leading academic medical centers in the country, Weill Cornell Medicine also has an infectious disease clinical research unit that offers clinical trials and give patients access to new and cutting-edge treatments for infection that may not be available elsewhere.
