Haematology

Haematologists specialise in the study of blood, blood-forming organs as well as blood-related diseases such as haemophilia and anemia. Haemotologists diagnose, treat and manage the prevention of blood-based diseases.

Gleneagles Hospitals take pride in our ability to help diagnose and offer treatment for such haematological conditions. Our process adheres to the global standards and incorporates both the skill and necessary experience of a diverse team of healthcare disciplines. Why? Because an accurate diagnosis in treating such conditions help us pinpoint the most effective treatment plan for each individual patient.
