THE KINGHORN CANCER CENTRE
I am able to offer you treatment for an extensive range of blood conditions, both cancer related and non-cancer related. A consultation with me may occur in The Kinghorn Cancer Centre, even though you do not have cancer.
At your consultation with me I will talk to you about your condition, perform a physical examination and ask you to have some blood tests. We will discuss your condition and formulate a management plan. You are welcome to attend your appointment either on your own or with others.
Laboratory services are provided by SydPath (St Vincent’s Pathology), which offers a full range of diagnostic tests important in haematology. For your convenience, pathology collectors are located onsite. You may require a bone marrow biopsy which is performed in the Nelune Centre at The Kinghorn. Diagnostic radiology including PET scans are performed at St Vincent’s Public Hospital.
Treatment may involve chemotherapy or other therapies. I will discuss the options with you and obtain your consent prior to any chemotherapy or other procedure. I will also provide you with information about your treatment to read and share with those close to you. You will be offered a chemotherapy education session prior to your treatment to help you understand what is involved. All treatments are given in the Nelune Centre. This is serviced by experienced nurses who are trained to give chemotherapy, blood products and other specialised medication. Therapeutic venesections are performed in St Vincent's Clinic.
You will be well cared for.
