The hematology department looks after and treats people with blood-related disorders.
We have trained hematologists for both pediatric and adult patient suffering from blood-related disorders. One can experience state-of-the-art technology and the latest advancements in medicine at kaizen. Our hemato-oncology team is trained to provide the best form of care, keeping in mind the extremely sensitive nature of the patient’s medical conditions. We also offer tertiary care services for patients with hematological disorders both benign and malignant.
We provide advanced and personalized care for the following conditions:
- Hemoglobinopathies: These are the genetic disorders that affect the structure or production of the hemoglobin in red blood cells. Sickle cell anemia and Thalassemia are known examples of hemoglobinopathies. Using a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic measures we provide adequate care in the patient at Kaizen.
- Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis: It is a complex blood disorder which is characterized by overactive immune cells. The immune system will damage the patient’s own tissues and organs, including the liver, brain, and bone marrow where blood is made. It most frequently affects infants from birth to 18 months of age, although it has been seen in all age groups. Our department of hemato-oncology provides expert and personalized care for these complex blood disorders. As these conditions affect a child’s health, we offer expert care that combines the skills of a multidisciplinary team of specialists for your child’s overall health.
- Acquired Hemolytic anemias: It is a rare condition in which the body’s own immune system attacks and destroys red blood cells faster than your bone marrow can make new ones. Kaizen provides proper diagnosis and treatment of the underlying disorders that usually bring marked improvement of these rare anemias.
- Pregnancy Related Blood disorders: During pregnancy, bleeding disorders can cause serious risks to the mother and baby. Most of these disorders are acquired as a result of pregnancy, while some as inherited. Kaizen has a multidisciplinary health care team, including a hematologist an anesthesiologist experienced in pregnancies with bleeding disorders, and a pediatric hematologist to address serious bleeding problems.
- Consultative Hematology: This is a specialized service in which the hematologists evaluates and treats patients with changes in their blood counts which are undiagnosed or benign in nature. The team also interacts with the patients providing prompt, appropriate, and complete consultation in hematology.
- Acquired and Congenital Bleeding Disorders: Bleeding disorders are the condition that represents the inability to form a proper blood clot. Improper clotting usually results from defects in blood components, such as clotting proteins and/or platelets. Congenital bleeding disorders are caused by defects in genes and are present at birth, while acquired bleeding disorders develop after birth. Kaizen’s department of hematology offer proper treatment and care to prevent or treat bleeding. They also offer proper counseling and education for patients to prevent the chances of bleeding.
- Acquired and Congenital Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes: These are rare disorders characterized by the failure in the production of mature blood cells by the bone marrow. These conditions may be congenital (present at birth) or develop later in life. Some are due to an underlying inherited genetic condition, while others are acquired from viral or drug/toxin exposures. Kaizen’s multidisciplinary care team of specialists facilitates focused disease surveillance, proper anticipatory guidance and treatment for minimization of disease and other complications.
