Clinical Hematology

♦️ Overview of Department

   The department of clinical hematology provides consultation and treatment to people with blood related disease and disorders. These include both benign and malignant blood diseases.

 

   The aim of department is to provide high standards of care on the foundation of ethical principles, scientific basis and professional excellence. The department also involved in various research activities.

 

 

                     ♦️  Expertise
 

   The clinical hematology department provides specialist consultation and treatment in both benign and malignant blood diseases.

♦️  Technological Advancement

 

 

   Immunotherapy and targeted therapy for blood cancer (lymphoma, leukemia, myeloma).

   Stem cell transplantation for premalignant conditions (MDS), blood cancer (leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma) and benign conditions (Thalassemia major, sickle cell disease, and primary Immunodeficiency etc.) are done in the department of clinical hematology.

 

   Autologous stem cell transplant, matched related allogeneic stem cell transplant, haploidentical stem cell transplant and matched unrelated stem cell transplant are done in the department of clinical hematology.
