CNM Health Reporter

 Meitra Hospital in Kozhikode has launched a comprehensive facility for the treatment of Blood Cancers like Multiple Myeloma. Housed under the Department of Haemato-Oncology & BMT, the Myeloma Clinic will serve blood cancer patients by offering specialized and holistic treatment combining medication, chemotherapy & Blood Marrow Transplantation. Headed by Dr. Ragesh R. Nair, the newly launched clinic is staffed with a team of doctors and nurses specializing in the treatment and is supported by a sophisticated Intensive Care Unit along with allied medical and surgical departments to ensure complete patient care under one roof.

The inaugural ceremony of the Myeloma Clinic was presided over by Prof. Narinder Kumar Mehra, an internationally acclaimed stalwart in the field of Transplant immunology and a well-recognized academician. He applauded the initiative and stressed on the need of a specialized facility treating Multiple Myeloma. “This is the right approach being adopted by Meitra Hospital. I am certain, that in times to come this clinic will establish itself as a benchmark in treating Myeloma, not just in South India but the entire country”, he stated. Prof. Mehra is the former Dean of AIIMS, New Delhi and ICMR Emeritus Scientist.

A type of a blood cancer, Myeloma or Multiple Myeloma develops on account of uncontrolled growth of cancerous plasma cells inside the bone marrow. Globally, Autologous Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT), is the standard care for Myeloma and in an appropriate patient, it can deliver superior outcomes. The BMT programme under the newly launched clinic adopts a patient centric approach, deploys state-of-the-art infrastructure, offers Hepa-filtered and positive pressure BMT suites while maintaining stringent infection control protocols.

“Even though a blood disorder, this condition can have devastating effects on nearly all the major bodily systems. It weakens the bones resulting in fractures and back pains; certain proteins released from the damaged cells can injure the kidneys while excessive calcium in the blood may affect the heart, kidneys and the nervous system inadvertently. It lowers the haemoglobin levels and affects the immune system as well. This multi-system affliction requires a well-coordinated team to work closely in unison to ensure best outcomes. Myeloma Clinic at Meitra has been established to provide globally recognized care & treatment to Multiple Myeloma patients,” informs Dr. Ragesh R. Nair, Director- Haemato Oncology &Bone Marrow Transplant, Meitra Hospital.

“Modern discoveries and great advances in Myeloma treatment have made it a very treatable disease. Coupled with Bone Marrow Transplant, these advancements the experts can now control Myeloma in majority of the patients. Renowned experts from the field of Haemato-Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant, Ortho-Spine, Neuro-Spine, Nephrology, Pathology, Radiology, Gastroenterology and Cardiology come together in this specialized clinic at Meitra Hospital to provide comprehensive care.
