The center offers specialist consultation for patients with blood disorders and blood cancers.

Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Programme:

The Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre offers Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation. In this treatment, deficient bone marrow or malignant cells are eradicated using high dose chemotherapy (with or without radiation therapy). The patient is then given replacement cells that come from either bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cell, or cord blood order, to restore hematologic and immunologic function to health.

How does this treatment work? Normally, when high doses of chemotherapy are given, cancer cells are killed, but the patient’s ability to generate new blood cells is also destroyed. To counteract this, healthy stem cells (from bone marrow or peripheral blood or cord blood) are given to the patient. It takes about 2 to 3 weeks for the stem cells to grow again in his or her bone marrow space, and will, in time, produce new blood cells.
