At our Blood Disorders Center, we treat a variety of complex blood disorders and cancers, including sickle cell, chronic anemia, leukemia and thalassemia. Treatments may include blood product transfusions, iron infusions, injections and autologous bone marrow stem cell transplants.
To help make the process easier for you, we coordinate with Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) regional health centers to help you receive routine infusions closer to home.
Bone marrow transplantation is a complex process that will require several months of preparation. Our dedicated team will discuss with you your personalized plan and the requirements for the treatment, as well as explaining what to expect as you prepare for transplant.
Some chronic blood disorders require dedicated blood and plasma infusion care. This may include the use of machines for exchange of these blood products (apheresis). At JHAH, you can be assured you are in safe hands, with experts from our blood bank and hematology teams providing this specialized treatment.
Bleeding disorders affect the way your blood clots (coagulates), and can mean easy or heavy bleeding. Hemophilia is perhaps the best-known bleeding disorder, though it is relatively rare and mostly affects males. A more common bleeding disorder is Von Willebrand disease, which is caused by clotting proteins. At JHAH, we have the expertise to diagnose and manage these complex problems, providing treatments such as plasma transfusions or injecting clotting factor agents into your bloodstream.
