Department of Hematology

Department of Hematology

Department of Hematology at CMRI is dedicated to provide high quality compassionate care to all its patients. We believe this can be achieved through integration of sound clinical history, physical examination and correct ordering and interpretation of laboratory tests.

The diagnostic expertise, provision of high quality safe blood components through an in-house world-class blood bank, isolation care services with barrier nursing and a back up of an efficient intensive care unit are our critical pillars of support, in achieving the good clinical outcomes we forget.

The Department provides clinical facilities in the OPD, Day Care Centre and also indoor patient care. The OPD services are available daily and emergency services around the clock are available to all our follow up and new patients.

  • A lymphoma IS a form of cancer that affects the immune system – specifically, it is a cancer of immune cells called lymphocytes, a type of White Blood Cell. There are two broad types of lymphoma and many subtypes. The two types of lymphoma are described as Hodgkin’s or non-Hodgkin’s.
  • The potential to transform a fatal diagnosis into a curable condition exists even if it is a stage 2 or 3 diseases. All the blood cancers can be treated and some of them can be curable. Cure in cancer means that the disease goes into remission and never relapses. Cancer patients undergo treatments (chemotherapy, targeted therapy and sometimes radiation) so that they can put their cancer into remission. Remission means that the disease has disappeared or is no longer growing. In general, the longer a concern is in remission the less likely it will come back. Lymphomas and Leukemia are potentially curable.
