Haematology - Overview

What is haematology?

Haematology is a field of medicine that diagnoses, treats and manages disorders of the blood, bone marrow and lymphatic system. These disorders include haematologic malignancies, which refer to cancers that affect the blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes.

Haematologists work closely with doctors to interpret and monitor blood results to make diagnoses, identify medical conditions and assess the effect of treatment.

The haematology specialty also supports blood transfusion services, as well as immunotherapy and cell therapy, to treat cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma.

Our approach

Established in 2004, the Haematology and Stem Cell Transplant Centre is located at Mount Elizabeth @ The Heeren.

It is headed by Dr Patrick Tan, who performed one of the world’s earliest successful unrelated-donor blood stem cell and cord blood transplants for thalassemia major, a severe blood disorder where the body is unable to produce normal red blood cells.

The centre delivers quality diagnostic and treatment services for blood disorders and blood cancers.

Through a combination of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and stem cell and cord blood transplant treatments, the Haematology and Stem Cell Transplant Centre is committed to finding a long-term cure for patients whenever possible.
