About the department

The Department of Hematology, Oncology and Clinical Immunology at the University Hospital Duesseldorf offers the full range of modern diagnostics and treatment of oncopathology, blood diseases, and immune system. A special focus of specialization is the treatment of malignant diseases of the blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes. The excellent infrastructure, high-tech equipment and high professionalism of the department's doctors contribute to the optimal treatment results.The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Rainer Haas.

The department has vast experience in bone marrow transplantation. Since 1989, it has performed more than 1,500 transplantations of the patient own and donor hematopoietic stem cells. It should be noted that the department's doctors attach great importance to the further improvement of the transplantation technique and prevention of serious side effects. Thus, today the department successfully transplants stem cells to elderly patients and patients with severe concomitant diseases.

The great advantage of the department is the presence of a number of specialized laboratories for basic diagnostics and further examination of hematological patients. The modern immune-cytological and molecular-biological examination methods in combination with classical cytomorphology form the basis for the diagnostics of all blood and bone marrow diseases. Of particular interest is the diagnostics of acute and chronic leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, lymphomas, and multiple myeloma.
