Madhav Vissa

Pediatric Hematologist-Oncologist

I am a pediatric hematologist with a special interest in caring for individuals with inherited blood disorders, specifically sickle cell disease and thalassemia, throughout the lifespan. Before my fellowship training in pediatric hematology/oncology, I completed a residency in combined internal medicine and pediatrics with the goal of providing specialty care for individuals with lifelong medical conditions. My overarching goal is to ensure patients who live with chronic conditions are able to thrive as healthy, functional children, adolescents and adults. I aim to achieve this by providing excellent clinical care, engaging in clinical research to better understand the current state and future of care and care delivery, and continue to learn by teaching others about the complexities of these fascinating hematologic conditions.
