Hematology

What we do

The Department of Hematology / Oncology at Kameda Medical Center was established in 1990. As a central facility for the treatment of leukemia, malignant lymphoma and myeloma primarily in the  Boso Peninsula, we have been treating many patients. Currently, 70-80 patients are hospitalizedat any given time, making it one of the largest treatment facilities for blood diseases in Japan.

For medical treatment in the ward, in addition to 6 staff members above the senior resident level , 1 to 2 junior resident doctorsassist us in treating patients.We have already gained a lot of experience and achievements in the treatment using bone marrow transplantation, peripheral blood stem cell transplantation, etc.  Bone marrow transplantation was started in 1990, and the number of allogeneic stem cell transplant attempts has exceeded 400.The number of transplants in the last three years has been around 15 cases per year. We are also actively performing autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for malignant lymphoma and multiple myeloma, and more than 200 autologous transplants have been performed so far. As a facility to do this, 36 beds including 16 beds in the aseptic room on the 9th floor of the K tower, and 42 beds including 2 private rooms on the 8th floor of the new A tower have always been in full operation.
