Department of Pediatric Hematology

The Department of Pediatric Hematology at Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS Trust Hospital is dedicated for treatment of children with blood disorders such as anemia, thalassemia, Fanconi anemia, thrombocytopenia, bleeding and clotting disorders, aplastic anemia etc. The department has also successfully undertaken many bone marrow transplantation programs in the last 3 years. There is a dedicated BMT unit available onsite.

Our Hematologists provide out patient and Inpatients services to various blood disorders including diagnostic and therapeutic services. Procedures like bone marrow aspiration & biopsy are performed in the hospital. The department is well supported by a hematology lab which has NABL accreditation. Children with chronic hematological disorders are followed up in the out patient department. 24 hours care is provided by a full time consultant.

The hematologists work closely with pediatric oncologists in the dedicated pediatric oncology ward as there will be some overlap in the care provided.
