India is called “the thalassaemia capital of the world”. Yet, not many are aware of this disease. There are over 40 million carriers in our country. The chances of these carriers passing on their defective genes to their children and eventually increasing their thalassaemia risk are high.
In this episode of “Know It to Beat It” by HCG – the Specialist in Cancer Care, Dr. Sachin Suresh Jadhav, one of the skilled haematologist and stem cell transplant specialists at HCG Cancer Centre, will be talking about the best treatment approach for thalassaemia patients.
He will be talking about the two treatment approaches that are being used currently and stresses on the curative potential of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) along with its advantages.
Early detection and timely intervention still remain the best way to beat cancers and haematological disorders. Our multidisciplinary team ensures that each case is diligently looked at, to ensure that the patient receives the right treatment, the first time.
