Appointments and Specialities

Clinical Hematology is the specialty that studies blood and its components in clinical and laboratory perspectives, mainly blood cells – erythrocytes (red blood cells), leukocytes (white blood cells) and blood platelets – and the organs that produce them (hematopoietic organs) – bone marrow, spleen and lymph nodes.

Clinical Hematology specialists at Joaquim Chaves Saúde medical units, supported by lab studies, also study diseases related to these elements, namely anaemia, leukaemia, lymphoma,multiple myeloma and coagulation disorders.

Clinical Hematology interacts with other specialties, in its area of diagnosis and therapy, namely Medical Oncology, Internal Medicine and Imunohemotherapy. It benefits from the well-known quality of Laboratório Dr. Joaquim Chaves, a reference in clinical analysis.
