Hematology / Blood Diseases

The field of hematology includes diagnostics and treatment the blood benign and malignant diseases, lymphomas, myeloma, acute and chronic courses of leukemia are diagnosed and treated by highly-qualified physicians at our hospital. Contemporary treatment methods, modern medications and radio, and chemotherapy are used to treat a variety of hematological issues such as blood, bone marrow and, lymph node disorders and immune system diseases.

With an experienced team of doctors and nurses of the Hematology Department and involvement of immunology, radiology, intensive care, and blood bank, and bone marrow transplantation departments, high-quality care is provided at our hospital.

Frequent hematological diseases are:

  • Multiple myeloma,
  • Hodgkin lymphoma,
  • Non-Hodgkin-lymphomas,
  • Acute myeloid leukemia (AML),
  • Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL),
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL),
  • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML),
  • Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS),
  • Myeloproliferative diseases,
  • Anemia, functional or numerical abnormalities of leucocytes (white blood cells, WBC), erythrocytes (red blood cells, RBC) and platelets,
  • Coagulation disorders,
  • Diseases of the immune system.
Bone Marrow Transplantation Center

Bone marrow transplantation is offered through Memorial Bone Transplantation Centre, by Memorial Healthcare Group that has international eminence in Organ Transplantation. The unit which strives to meet all the needs of local and international patients is equipped with all the facilities following global standards.

With 3 different Bone Marrow Transplantation centers in 3 different cities in Turkey, we give patients a benefit of choice and time flexibility.

In addition to the international standards on bone marrow transplantation our center provides, it also meets all the needs of patients. In cases of blood disorders such as multiple myeloma (bone marrow malignant disease caused by plasma cells), acute leukemia (blood cancer), chronic leukemia, lymphoma (lymph node hematological cancer), and aplastic anemia we perform bone marrow transplantation at the center where all treatment methods are planned with a multidisciplinary approach.

Bone marrow transplant / Stem cell transplant

“Bone marrow transplant” or “stem cell transplant” are terms for stem cell transplant, which have the function of producing blood in the human body. Bone marrow transplant is “autologous” when it’s performed with stem cells taken from the patient’s body, and “allogenic” when it’s performed with stem cells taken from donors with tissue compatibility.

Stem cells were directly collected from bone marrow using special needles before. Yet, this method is not applied often today. Specific medication is used to transfer stem cells to the blood and then they are collected by non-surgical method “apheresis”. Bone marrow transplantation is performed also without surgical intervention, bone marrow cells, transplanted through the vascular access, find bone marrow themselves and start production of blood. To monitor the patient while bone marrow starts functioning in the new location is the main challenge of the bone marrow transplant. As red and white blood cells and thrombocytes (responsible for coagulation) cannot be produced during this critical period some complications like anemia, infection, and hemorrhage may occur. Preventing bone marrow rejection, as well as possible diseases caused by new marrow by treating properly, are crucial for the positive outcome.

Bone marrow transplant, to be successful needs coexistence of several factors such as, good technical infrastructure isolation from microbes, multidisciplinary cooperation, experienced team and needed intervention of intensive care department during both, transplantation and complications which may follow.

Kidney Transplantation

Memorial kidney transplantation centers, staffed by world-renowned academics, specialist physicians, and post organ transplantation caregivers, provide the highest level services. Liver transplants for children and adults are successfully performed amongst all kinds of transplantations from live or cadaver donors. The departments were transplantation is handled with the cooperation of multiple technical and infrastructural advances became the world’s reference centers.  In turkey live donor transplantation level reaches 80%, due to this, it takes first place amongst those who perform live donor transplantations. Thus Memorial Kidney Transplantation centers also function as international education centers due to the annual training programs with participation of Turkish and foreign, mostly American surgeons from outstanding U.S hospitals.

Special surgical techniques are performed with great success in Memorial Kidney Transplantation Centers which are known in medical literature for their famous operations. When it comes to kidney donor operations, the most appropriate and minimally invasive approach is applied for the benefit of the patient.

Liver Transplantation

Memorial Liver Transplantation Centers, with their internationally standardized, world-renowned academic medical specialists and post transplantation patient care specialists provide their services at highest level. Live donor and cadaver donor transplantations of liver in children and adults are successfully performed in centers where the best results are achieved in all types of transplants. Organ Transplantation Center is related to laboratory, imaging units and intensive care department in order to succeed in operation, live donor transplantations reach 80% in Turkey, due to insufficient organ donation. As a result, country takes first place amongst those who perform live donor transplantations. Memorial liver transplantation centers annually organize training programs participated by surgeons from the world’s outstanding hospitals, mainly the USA and from universities and hospitals of turkey.

Memorial Liver Transplantation Centers have entered the world’s medical literature with high-class surgeries, liver transplantations without blood loss are held at the centers, in addition to other surgical services.

Oncology Center

As the result of abnormal cell proliferation, cancer causes dysfunction in diseased organ or organ system. Considering this cancer diagnosis, treatment and follow-up requirements need to be performed with multidisciplinary approach. Imaging system advances allow made in recent years allow accurate diagnostics in earliest stages, radiation oncology in combination with surgery and other methods lead to positive outcome. Nowadays, due to scientific and technological progress the rates of successful cancer treatments are higher than ever.

Memorial Oncology Centers strive to provide comprehensive case-specific treatment with their globally acknowledged medical expertise and high-technology infrastructure.

New era in Radiation Oncology, Truebeam STx

TrueBeam STx, is latest revolutionary technology in cancer treatment and is feasible in all types of tumors, performing both, radiotherapy and radiosurgery it demonstrates technology even more advanced than Gamma Knife and CyberKnife. Truebeam STx can beam all types of tumors unlike Gamma knife which is only appropriate with scull-based tumors. Though cyber knife is used for all types of tumors, it’s not as effective as Truebeam STx in large tumors.

Robotic Surgery Center

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery or robotics, is the most cutting-edge technology in medicine worldwide, especially in outstanding centers of the US, in a variety of fields, such as urology, gynecology, general surgery, thoracic surgery, cardiovascular surgery, and otorhinolaryngology. What makes the Da Vinci Robotics stand out as a technology are the privileges it provides to both the physician and the patient, as its most successful surgical method of cancer treatment in today’s world. Robotic surgery imaging systems work with laparoscopic surgery principle, image, transferred through the body to the monitor in robotic surgery is three-dimensional unlike laparoscopic surgery images, moreover, since the camera is controlled by robot image is steady, in addition, it’s clear, even with magnification. Robot’s arms, placed in the patient are controlled by the console, surgical instruments that are connected to the arms of robot can rotate 540°, much more than human hand possibilities. Minimizing the margin of error is the most important advantage of robotic surgery.
