Theresa Cole, RN, talks with a fellow nurse inside the Bone Marrow Failure Clinic.
Families usually come to the Bone Marrow Failure Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s to establish a diagnosis or receive a second opinion. First, our team offers a comprehensive evaluation that typically lasts two to four days. Next, we provide treatment recommendations.
Before the evaluation, the team reviews test results and other materials provided by the referring physician. Our evaluation includes:
In addition, we encourage families to consult with genetic counselors at Cincinnati Children’s. These counselors can talk with families about the results of genetic tests that were performed. Such tests are used to help confirm diagnoses and refine the treatment plan. Our team helps schedule these consultations.
After reviewing the results of the comprehensive evaluation, and before the family returns home, members of the care team talk at length with the family about the child’s health and treatment options. The team also provides a written summary and treatment recommendations to the patient’s family and referring physician.
We offer a broad range of therapies, including some innovative approaches not available at other children’s hospitals. Our multidisciplinary team of experts (link to meet the team page) offers exceptional care.
Among the many treatment options are:
Children can receive ongoing care at Cincinnati Children’s on an inpatient or outpatient basis, or return home to the care of their referring physician.
Our team is always available to consult with families and their physicians. We like to see patients once a year to assess their progress and make additional treatment recommendations, if necessary.
