Hematologists examine and treat blood disorders.
These disorders may affect blood cells or blood plasma. Changes in the blood count do not directly indicate which blood disorder you have. Because of this, we perform thorough examinations, often also taking bone marrow samples. We have the samples tested at laboratories specializing in blood disorder diagnostics so that the diagnosis can be quickly and accurately made and treatment begun. Treatments for malignant blood disorders have improved remarkably in recent years, and today most disorders can be cured with chemotherapy or a stem cell transplantation.
Blood plasma changes may lead to blood coagulation problems. Weakened blood coagulation (hemophilia) may lead to bleeding disorders, and excessive coagulation (thrombophilia) presents a risk of thrombosis, or blood clots. The diagnostics and care of these coagulation disorders require special expertise. Such disorders may be hereditary, and therefore examining and advising your family members forms an important part of the treatment.
The Coagulation Disorder Unit specializes in treating hemophilia and thrombophilia. Our treatments are based on international research findings and recommendations.
