About Me

A diagnosis of a blood cancer or blood disorder is a daunting experience. For reassurance and expertise in the latest treatments, turn to Roberto Ferro, MD, a hematology oncologist who practices at Avera Medical Group Hematology and Bone Marrow Transplant in Sioux Falls, SD.

“Avera holds a fantastic hematology oncology portfolio, with effective treatment options,” said Dr. Ferro. “In addition, we are able to serve our patients close to home, either through in-clinic visits or Avera eCARE telemedicine options.”

Comprehensive Care for Blood-Related Conditions

Patients of all ages are served by Dr. Ferro, who treats conditions such as leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and anemia.

CAR T-Cell Therapy

One effective form of immunotherapy treatment that Dr. Ferro offers is called CAR T-cell therapy. A portion of the patient’s blood is removed, and then T-cells are removed from this blood. The T-cells are then modified to fight cancerous cells once they are reintroduced into the body.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Ferro enjoys playing chess, golfing, read about astrophysics, and keeping up with the latest news in medical journals.
