It deals with many diseases such as weakness, fatigue, jaundice, polycythemia, recurrent infections, weight problems, bleeding, enlarged lymph nodes, bone and joint pain, hemangioma, lymphoma, leukemia, Hodgkin's lymphoma, as well as thalassemia. The doctors of this department also perform transplants such as bone marrow and blood transfusions.
