Dr Shahroch Nahrwar specializes in haematology. He often treats patients with challenging, life-threatening and rare conditions. Haematology is the science or study of blood, blood-forming organs and blood diseases. Clinical haematology is concerned with the research, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of blood and lymphatic system disorders. Patients are usually referred by their primary doctor to a haematologist if their blood tests came back with abnormalities.
Patients coming in for a consultation will have their full medical history taken. Dr Nahrwar will perform an examination, take blood samples and later examine these blood samples in a lab. A basic blood analysis measures the sugar level, electrolyte and fluid balance, as well as kidney function. Should it be necessary, Doctor Nahrwar can perform various tests, including bone marrow aspirations, biopsies, and lumbar punctures.
Treatments for these conditions can include drug therapies such as blood thinners/anticoagulants, dialysis, chemo- and radiation therapy, surgical interventions, or stem cell/bone marrow transplants.
Diagnosing a patient with a genetic/hereditary condition can be helpful to other family members because they too can be screened and treated, if necessary.
