Today, treatment of many hereditary or non-hereditary diseases is possible with Stem Cell Transplantation.
Stem Cell Transplantation is a treatment method that can be performed by a difficult, experienced, and specialized team. Stem cell transplant, which is the definitive treatment method for many diseases that cannot be cured with medical treatment, can only be performed in Stem Cell Transplant Units with special physical conditions.
Patients who are candidates for stem cell transplantation receive intensive treatment before and after transplantation to get rid of their diseases. The most vital of the numerous side effects of these treatments is the weakening or even disappearance of the immune system. Even a simple infection can be life-threatening in immunocompromised patients. For this reason, stem cell transplant patients can be transferred to private clinics where the air is filtered, there are single isolation rooms, entry-exit is controlled and limited, and world-accepted mandatory hygiene rules are meticulously applied. Another feature of these clinics is that they are Intensive Care Units.
Childhood transplants are a treatment method for many diseases. The most common of these are:
- Blood-Making Disorders
- Thalassemia (Mediterranean Anemia)
- Sickle Cell Disease
- Bone Marriage Failure
- Genetic Disorders
- Diseases of the Immune System
