This information was given by the superspecialist doctors of Apollomedics Super specialty Hospital Lucknow during a press conference held in Kanpur. Till now, patients had to travel to cities like Delhi-Mumbai to get treatment for these serious diseases.

Senior Consultant – Hematology and Bone Marrow Transplant, Apollomedics Super specialty Hospital, Lucknow, Dr Sunil Dabadghao said, “Apollomedics Super specialty Hospital Lucknow will now offer Bone Marrow Transplant as well as pediatric cancer treatment. Pediatric Oncology at the hospital will provide treatment for the complex cancers, leukemia, lymphoma and aplastic anemia in children. The hospital has state-of-the-art equipment for chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Dr. Priyanka Chauhan, Consultant-Haematology & Bone Marrow Transplant said “Bone Marrow transplantation (BMT) or stem cell transplant is a procedure in which a healthy blood-producing bone marrow is transplanted in place of diseased or damaged bone marrow. It is required when the bone marrow stops functioning properly and does not produce enough healthy blood cells. The procedure for a bone marrow transplant is a complex process and requires a super-specialist team. The facility of bone marrow transplant at Apollomedics, a trusted name in the health sector, comes as big relief”
Associate Consultant, Hematology & Pediatrics Oncology, Apollomedics, Hospital, Dr Anil Sharma, said, “In most cases, there is no specific reason or cause for the child to have developed cancer. But the good news is that childhood cancers are treatable and most are curable. With the start of Apollomedics Bone Marrow Transplantation Services we will be able to give a new lease of life to patients who are in need of BMT.”
