Transplant-Oncology Infectious Disease Program

The Transplant-Oncology Infectious Disease Program at Stony Brook University Hospital offers clinical expertise in the prevention and management of infectious complications in oncology, solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients as well as patients receiving immune-biologic therapies.

The Immunocompromised Host Infectious Disease Inpatient Service

At Stony Brook University, we have a dedicated Immunocompromised Host inpatient consultation service, which is led by dedicated Infectious disease faculties with transplant ID training and experiences, as well as in-training ID fellows and a clinical pharmacist.

The Transplant-Oncology Infectious Disease Outpatient Service.

Our Transplant-Oncology ID outpatient service provides the following consultation services:

  • Full assessments of transplant candidates, focusing on infection risks and prevention.
  • Consults for management and prevention of infectious disease management and prevention in transplant patients and donors.
  • Assessment and management of infections in oncologic patients receiving chemotherapy and/or immunotherapy.
  • Evaluation and management of patients whom are planned for or receiving biologic therapies.
  • Management of Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) infection.

The outpatient Transplant-Oncology Service will be operated every week at two locations in East Setauket and Commack.

Currently, our program has two infectious disease specialists who received specific training in immunocompromised, oncologic patients and, solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients with infectious diseases.
