Hematology is the branch of Internal medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders and diseases related to blood and blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and lymphatic system.
Our treatment approach depends on the specific disease and its severity, as well as the patient's overall health condition. Hematology is a specialized field of our Internal Medicine Department and patients with blood-related disorders are given medication and care from hematologists or oncologists who specialize in blood cancers.
Some of the diseases and disorders that we treat under hematology include:
- Thrombosis and bleeding disorders
- Sickle cell disease
- Myelodysplastic syndromes
- Platelet disorders
- Iron deficiency
- Vitamin B12 Deficiency.
Our Hematologists use a range of methods to diagnose and treat these disorders, including:
- Blood tests to check for abnormal blood cell counts and functions.
- Bone marrow biopsy to examine the bone marrow cells and assess their function.
The various treatment options available to treat blood-related disorders are:
- Blood transfusions to replace blood components that are missing or not functioning properly.
- Chemotherapy kills cancer cells in the blood or bone marrow.
- Stem cell transplantation to replace damaged bone marrow cells.
- Immunotherapy enhances the body's immune system to fight cancer cells.
- Blood thinning medications to prevent clot formation.
- Iron chelation therapy to remove excess iron from the body in patients with hemochromatosis.
