At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital in Abu Dhabi, our Paediatric Haematology-Oncology department is dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and cutting-edge care for children with blood disorders and cancers. Our multidisciplinary team of highly skilled haematologists, oncologists, nurses, and support staff work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcomes for our young patients and their families. Below are the specialised services we offer:

Hereditary Benign Haematology Follow-Up

Sickle Cell Anaemia, Thalassemia Syndromes, and Hemoglobinopathies

Our team specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management of hereditary blood disorders such as sickle cell anaemia, thalassemia syndromes, and various hemoglobinopathies. We provide regular follow-ups and personalised treatment plans to manage these conditions, alleviate symptoms, and prevent complications. Our approach is tailored to meet the unique needs of each child, ensuring they lead as normal and fulfilling lives as possible.

Enzymopathy and Membranopathy

Enzymopathy refers to disorders caused by the malfunction or deficiency of specific enzymes within the body's cells. These conditions often result from genetic mutations that affect enzyme production, structure, or function. Membranopathy encompasses disorders resulting from defects in the cell membrane's structure or function, particularly those affecting red blood cells. These defects often lead to abnormal cell shape and increased fragility, causing hemolysis. These  are other common hereditary conditions we manage. Our paediatric haematologists offer comprehensive care plans, including dietary guidance and medication management, to help prevent episodes of haemolysis and other related complications. Regular monitoring and education are key components of our care strategy, empowering families to manage these conditions effectively.

Iron Deficiency Anaemia

Iron deficiency anaemia is one of the most common paediatric haematological conditions. At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital in Abu Dhabi, we offer thorough diagnostic evaluations to determine the underlying causes of iron deficiency in children. Our treatment protocols include dietary modifications, iron supplementation, and close monitoring to ensure the restoration of normal haemoglobin levels. We aim to educate parents about the importance of iron-rich nutrition and ongoing follow-up care to prevent recurrence.

Cancer Survivor Follow-Up

Surviving cancer is a significant milestone, but the journey doesn’t end there. Our cancer survivor follow-up program is designed to address the long-term health needs of paediatric cancer survivors. We provide comprehensive assessments to monitor for late effects of cancer treatment, including growth and development issues, secondary cancers, and organ function. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that survivors receive holistic care, including psychological support and health education, to help them transition to a healthy adulthood.

Coagulation and Bleeding Disorders Evaluation and Management

Our paediatric haematology team is equipped to diagnose and manage a wide range of coagulation and bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, and platelet function disorders. We use advanced diagnostic tools and individualised treatment plans, including clotting factor replacement therapy and prophylactic measures, to manage these conditions. Our goal is to minimise bleeding episodes, prevent complications, and improve the quality of life for our patients.

Post Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Care

Bone marrow transplant (BMT) is a critical treatment for various haematological malignancies and disorders. Post-BMT care is crucial for the recovery and long-term success of the transplant. At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital, we provide comprehensive post-transplant care, including monitoring for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), infection prevention, and overall health maintenance. Our team works closely with patients and their families to ensure a smooth recovery and a return to normal activities.

Active Paediatric Oncology Patients on Oral Therapy Only

For paediatric oncology patients on oral therapy, we offer specialised outpatient care to manage their treatment effectively. Our team ensures that patients receive the correct dosages and schedules for their oral medications, monitoring for side effects and efficacy. We provide ongoing education and support to families, helping them manage the complexities of oral cancer therapies at home. Our goal is to maintain the child’s quality of life while effectively controlling the disease.

At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital in Abu Dhabi, we are committed to providing exceptional paediatric haematology-oncology services. Our holistic approach, state-of-the-art facilities, and compassionate care ensure that our young patients receive the best possible treatment and support on their journey to health and well-being.
