This Department provides holistic care to children with blood disorders and cancer & comprises of leading consultants ably supported by junior staff. The Department has been functioning for over 15 years.

Services offered:

Treatment of children with blood disorders like anaemia and bleeding problems like haemophilia. Lead areas of service includes therapy of children with thalassemia major, sickle cell anaemia and children with recurrent infections suspected to have primary immune deficiency disorders. These children are seen in our speciality clinic and are offered diagnostic services including molecular work up and complete treatment including curative bone marrow transplantation all under one roof.

Cancer in children is curable and this message of hope is what we endeavour to give to every single child referred for management under our care. We work as a team with diagnostic services and have access to PET CT and specialist histopathologists, haematopathologists, paediatric intensivists, paediatric oncosurgeons and radiation oncologists to provide optimal care for children with cancer.

Bone marrow transplantation offers the only chance of cure for patients with difficult blood cancers, primary immunodeficiency and thalassemia major. The HOPE team performs about 80 paediatric transplants each year and is the largest paediatric bone marrow transplant centre in the country.

The courage and endurance of every little child we treat inspires us each day to spread the message of HOPE.
