St. Luke’s International Hospital

Hemato-Oncology Department

Overview

Thank you for visiting our Hemato-oncology page. The Hemato-oncology department was newly established in October of 2011 and conducts treatment for Hematological Malignancy such as Lymphoma and Leukemia, and also Sarcomas such as Osteosarcoma. Besides adults, our department also treats adolescent and young adult patients who were previously treated by the Pediatric Department. This reflects our department’s concept of “lifetime treatment,” that we would like to build a lifelong relationship with all of our patients including patients experiencing adolescence, which is a very important time in forming character and personality. We aim at providing the best treatment possible by accumulating the knowledge of the Pediatrics staff as well as the other departments at our hospital. Treatments, centering on anticancer therapies, are conducted by top-class physicians with considerable experience. We are also broadening our efforts into hematopoietic stem cell transplants such as bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cell and umbilical cord blood transplants. Furthermore, we feel that utilization of our hospital’s integrated medical strength for treatment of complications, prevention of infertility of young patients and approach to emotional problems as important agendas.

Hospital Admission

Centered on Hemato-oncology staff Mori, Kumamoto and Oshima, specialist trainees/residents/nurses/pharmacists exclusive to the hospital ward will take direct care of our patients. Treatments in our department are conducted under an integrated policy. In order to decide on treatment policies for our inpatients as well as outpatients, we hold weekly conferences with the entire staff. As we consider team medicine crucial especially for transplant therapy, the hospital ward puts effort in holding daily discussions with other departments regarding diagnosis and treatment policies. Taking advantage of our hospital’s characteristic of producing many respected general medicine practitioners; we conduct a general care that comprehensively examines the entire body in cooperation with other departments. In cooperation with the Hematology department, we hold conferences, seminars and ward meetings concerning “blood” disease. We also organize joint conferences with the Pediatrics, Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology departments.
