Paul C. Hendrie, MD, PhD
My interest in hematology began with my graduate research studying white blood cell development. During my time in the lab, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that combined research on blood diseases with caring for patients who have these diseases. As a physician, I get to be both a scientific expert and an advocate for patients like you.
Hematology consultations can be a lot like detective work. I search for the cause and identity of the problems you’re experiencing. Once a diagnosis has been made, we talk about it and discuss the next steps, which may include both established treatment options and newer treatments available only in clinical trials. Sometimes no treatment is needed. I want you to leave with a clear understanding of your diagnosis, an appropriate plan of care and the comfort that comes from being supported by an experienced team of doctors.
Specialties and clinical expertise: Hematologic malignancies, non-malignant hematology
My clinical and research interests include nonmalignant blood disorders, leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndrome. I’m a board-certified hematologist at SCCA and a UW associate professor of hematology and medicine. As an expert who studies and treats rare diseases, I work with a broad range of patients, some of whom participate in clinical trials.
My areas of clinical expertise include acquired aplastic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia, essential thrombocytosis, hairy cell leukemia, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, lymphoproliferative disorder, mastocytosis, myelodysplastic syndrome, myelofibrosis, myeloproliferative syndrome, polycythemia vera and post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder.
We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by SCCA doctors. Many of these trials at SCCA have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.
Many of our SCCA physicians conduct ongoing research to improve standards of patient care. Their work is evaluated by other physicians and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
