Hematology


Hematology Services provides multidisciplinary, compassionate care for the patients with a variety of cancers that develop in bone marrow, blood and lymph nodes, including leukemia, lymphoma, pre- leukemia and multiple myeloma. Patients with benign (noncancerous) blood disorders such as anemia, coagulation and thrombotic disorders, including hemophilia and deep vein thrombosis are also treated by Hematology Services.

We offer a full range of standard and innovative hematology treatments. We are in process to provide services of bone marrow transplantation. We also offer an in house hematopathology expert, a clinical laboratory that provides prompt test results and a research laboratory that allows patients access to novel treatment approaches. Because we are committed to finding new treatments and helping improve patients outcome, our team is also involved in ongoing clinical research projects. patients with hematological disorders have been cared for, from diagnosis to cure.
