The range of treatments covers all forms of modern oncological treatment (conventional chemotherapy, treatment with monoclonal antibodies, molecular targeted therapy with new drugs).

We also maintain close cooperation with the network of private hematologists/oncologists and specialists of the nearby clinics. The department of allogeneic transplantation of blood stem cells and the spinal cord was established in 1978 and belongs to one of the oldest in the world. Nowadays, the department offers various options for allogeneic transplantation of blood stem cells (family donor, unrelated donor, haploidentical donors, umbilical cord blood).
