  • Pediatric Hemato Oncology

    Our children are precious. And it is earth-shattering to know when they are afflicted with cancer in their growing years. No parent has to go through that emotional trauma. Pediatric hematologists and pediatric oncologists believe in compassion and empathy, giving parents hope for their children's health. Both have the specialized qualifications and years of experience to evaluate the child’s condition and treat him/her accordingly. We understand that every child’s physiology is different. The bodies of children and adolescents are at a growing stage and have unique medical needs. Most children are not able to express their feelings or what their bodies are experiencing. Adolescence is the most life-changing stage of the growing years into adulthood. Most young adults are either shy or reluctant to talk about their body. This makes it difficult to ascertain the underlying disorders especially those of the blood relating to menstruation cycles. We understand this phase so well that our doctors connect with the young patients drawing them out of their shells and communicating with them to confide in the doctors about what their body is undergoing. We have a dedicated pediatrics department which is seamlessly connected to the pediatric hematology-oncology unit. We have the experience and expertise to treat all blood related disorders and cancers in infants, children, adolescents and young adults with complete compassion and care. In the eventuality of an abnormal blood condition being diagnosed in a child, the pediatrician refers the little patient to the highly specialized team of pediatric hematology-oncology experts. Pediatric hemato-oncology department of specialists have the niche expertise and experience that is so vital in the delicate treatment of children with anemia or bone marrow cancer.

FAQs

  • What is the cut-off age (eligibility) for a bone marrow transplant?
    Bone marrow cell donors and recipients of all ages who meet strict health criteria are eligible for bone marrow transplant. This means both, the donor and the patient who is to receive the donor bone marrow cells, will undergo stringent tests to check for underlying risks and heath issues that could restrict the treatment. While younger donors under the age of 65 years are preferred for BMT, transplant recipients age can be extended upto 75 years if they are otherwise fit and without accompanying severe illness.
  • Can leukemia be cured after bone marrow transplant?
    There are four common types of leukemia. Of these, Acute Leukemia is the highly curable form of adult leukemia. This is attributed to the advances in the diagnosis and high-precision treatment of this type of blood cancer. Cure rates of 80-90 percent following bone marrow transplant have been reported from centers specializing in acute leukemia treatment, including Fortis Hospital in Mumbai, India.
  • Which family members can donate bone marrow?
    Seeking a bone marrow donor within the family is the first option. A brother or sister is most likely to be a perfect match as a donor. This is called a matched sibling donor transplant. There’s a 1 in 4 chance of the bone marrow cells matching among siblings. One’s parents, own children, and other relatives can sometimes be good matches. Only about 30% of those who need a bone marrow transplant can find a matching donor in their own family.
  • Is bone marrow transplant painful?
    The transplant procedure is not painful because it is not surgery. In fact, it is similar to a blood transfusion. The bone marrow cells are infused into the vein directly through a thin catheter or intravenous tube. This process could take a couple of hours and the recipient is awake throughout.
  • Can you walk after a bone marrow transplant?
    Recovery after a bone marrow transplant is gradual but most patients can walk throughout the transplant period barring a few days time when they have low blood counts. It could take several weeks for the new bone marrow cells which were infused into the blood to travel to the bone marrow to begin to make healthy new cells. In some, it could take longer. This is why doctors will keep a steady watch on the recipients to monitor their progress. Depending on the type of transplant, and the risks of complications, doctors could recommend light forms of exercising like walking for short periods within the transplant unit itself.
  • How long is recovery after bone marrow transplant?
    Recovery after a bone marrow transplant is gradual. It takes up to 2 weeks for the newly infused cells to reach the bone marrow to begin to make healthy new cells. This process is called engraftment. In some recipients, it could take longer. During this time the immunity system can be weak. To prevent infections or the risk of complications, doctors recommend hospitalization for a few weeks to around 90 days to monitor the progress. Even after being discharged from the hospital, the bone marrow transplant recipients will have to visit the hospital for routine follow-ups with the doctors to check the response to the transplant.
