She specializes in pediatric hematology and has particular expertise in the care of children undergoing stem cell transplantation for noncancerous disorders, such as sickle cell anemia, aplastic anemia and thalassemia. This field enables her to combine her joy in caring for patients with her love of research. She appreciates the bonds that she is able to form with the families of children with these diseases. It is an honor for her to shepherd them through one of the most challenging times in their lives.
In addition to caring for patients, Dr. Arnold conducts research. She has an MBA and performs outcome research to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of the therapies she uses.
