Operating since 2005, Metropolitan General’s Hematology-Oncology Clinic performs comprehensive investigation (combined with bone marrow tests, deploying all current molecular and cytogenetic techniques), diagnosis and treatment of patients from the whole spectrum of benign and malignant diseases, such as: anemia (including hemolytic and aplastic anemias), thrombocytopenia, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, acute leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, multiple myeloma, Hodgkin and non Hodgkin lymphomas, myelohyperplastic diseases, immunodeficiency and clotting disorders (hemorraghic and thrombophylic susceptibility).
Ever since 2006, the Hematology-Oncology Clinic can collect hematopoietic stem cells from the peripheral blood and conduct autologous transplant in case the procedure is indicated and necessary for patient treatment.
It should be highlighted that, in cooperation with specialized Departments at Metropolitan General, the Clinic can perform transfusion of blood and its derivatives and cell removal procedures, such as plateletapheresis, leukocytapheresis and plasmapheresis.
In addition, the Clinic is able to conduct investigation, staging, treatment, monitoring and secondary management of all malignant neoplasias in the head-neck, breast, lungs, digestive and urinary tract, genitalia, as well as sarcomas.
Treatment includes chemotherapies, hormonal therapies, immunotherapies, targeted and localized therapies, such as chemoembolism and radiofrequency tumor ablation, either on inpatients or One Day Clinic patients, by specialized staff.
There is close cooperation with Metropolitan Group’s Department of Radiotherapy, which accommodates high-end technological equipment, while, in cooperation with well equipped specialized centers, the Clinic can manage cases requiring radiosurgical treatment, such as γ-Knife or CyberKnife radiation.
Collaborating with the Central Laboratories, the Department of Medical Imaging, the Department of Nuclear Medicine and the Department of Endoscopies of Metropolitan General, the Clinic performs:
- Specialized blood tests
- CT- and MRI-scans, ultrasounds, scintigraphies, digital mammography with state-of-the-art equipment, digestive tract endoscopy, bronchoscopy and EUS-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNA)
Lastly, the Clinic cooperates with specialized centers abroad for patient consultation or visit, where necessary.
The Clinic’s pool of scientists holds extensive experience and has treated a large number of patients with oncological or hematological diseases; a fact which, in combination with continuous medical education, guarantees the most modern medical treatment.
Focusing on the human factor, the goal of the highly specialized and well trained medical and nursing personnel is to provide continuous and holistic monitoring and therapeutic approach to the oncology-hematology patient, as well as symptomatic and psychological support to the patient and his/her relatives, with the ability to provide comprehensive services on a 24/7 basis.
