Lori Luchtman-Jones is a board-certified pediatric hematologist-oncologist or blood doctor. Early in her career, she worked as an oncologist and bone marrow transplant doctor. She now specializes in pediatric hematology with a focus on hemostasis and thrombosis (blood clotting disorders). She is also a member of the Cerebrovascular Program at Cincinnati Children’s, where she works to improve the diagnosis and management of pediatric stroke. She choses her career because she love children — especially adolescents and young adults. She is inspired by the honesty and courage of her patients. Having to take medicine every day or having limitations on activity or endurance is difficult. However, she believes that people want to be healthy and strong, and by working together we can find a way forward. When patients, families, and medical staff work together, the impossible can become possible. She is always looking for ways to improve outcomes. In addition to her clinical practice, she conducts research and direct a clinical laboratory where we look for solutions to bleeding and clotting problems. Her team and she are trying to understand the connections between diseases like inflammatory disorders or sickle cell anemia and clotting. They also look for better ways to diagnose problems with platelet function.
