The Department of Hematology and Oncology of the Hippocrateon Private Hospital makes our hospital one of the best in Cyprus for the treatment of cancer and other blood-related diseases and conditions.
The department offers services related to a wide range of diseases, diagnosis and treatments, as well as relief and support to patients diagnosed with cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia and other rare blood diseases such as hemorrhage, venous thromboembolism, management of blood transfusions and their complications, aplastic anemia, autoimmune disorders and myelodysplastic syndrome. Most treatments result in full or partial recovery, significant improvement in health and an increase in life expectancy.
The Centre is fully equipped with state-of-the-art units which are supported by a number of medical and surgical specialties and supporting services. They all play an important role in offering modern therapeutic methods for the diagnosis and treatment of blood diseases and cancer.
The department often organises "Specialised Clinical Treatment Subgroups", such as Breast Surgery, Gastrointestinal, Gynecological and Urological Surgery, which represent the department’s main units. The multidisciplinary teams of healthcare professionals offer - where appropriate – new instructional models for the treatment of serious or controversial medical problems.
The Hematology/Oncology Center is an ideal choice for people seeking the most effective diagnostic methods and modern treatments to difficult or - sometimes - fatal diseases such as cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, thrombophilia, myelodysplastic syndrome, hemorrhage, aplastic anemia, autoimmune diseases, vitamin deficiencies, which are successfully treated in most cases.
