Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)
Myelodysplastic Syndromes Overview
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a rare group of blood disorders comprising several types of diseases. A precise diagnosis is necessary for determining the most effective treatment. It is therefore critical to find the right medical team and facilities to make an accurate diagnosis of MDS and design your individualized therapy.
At Sheba Medical Center in Israel, our Hemato-Oncology Division has cutting-edge diagnostic equipment and a world-class team of doctors to evaluate your cancer. Many leading physicians, including hematologists and medical oncologists, will collaborate to ensure that you receive the most progressive care possible to fight cancer. We are involved in the latest scientific research to treat myelodysplastic syndromes, and we will base your treatment program on the results of these studies. In addition, if you require a bone marrow/stem cell transplant, we utilize a precise HLA laboratory and our molecular laboratory to identify the perfect donor match. When necessary, we can also use stem cells from the National Marrow Donor Program data bank, of which Sheba is a member.
We treat cancer with a holistic approach that pays attention to your whole body, and not just MDS. From your initial consultation through follow-up examinations, our compassionate team will focus on optimizing your quality of life and comfort. Cancer can have devastating effects on your physical and psychological health, which is why your treatment program at Sheba includes a variety of professional support services.
