Centre for Hematology
We are introducing our new service - Centre for Hematology
Hematology is a branch of internal medicine, a subspecialization that deals with the diagnostics and treatment of blood diseases or diseases of the hematopoietic system. The hematologist diagnoses primary hematological diseases and other diseases that have led to disturbances in the blood count or enlargement of lymph nodes and spleen.
The most common hematological disorders are benign, such as anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia and reactively enlarged lymph nodes. Malignant processes are much less common disorders.
Hematologist examination consists of taking anamnestic data and physical examination, as well as laboratory, morphological and radiological examinations. Based on the results of these tests, the nature and cause of the hematological disorder can be clarified.
In our new Centre for Hematology, we provide quality diagnostics and treatment of blood diseases or diseases of the hematopoietic system, with our patients at the disposal of prof. Ana Planinc-Peraica, M.D., Ph.D., specialist in internal medicine and subspecialist in hematology.
