If you're fighting a hematologic cancer, it's important to find an experienced cancer team that's committed to helping you reach your individual treatment goals. Your doctors should:
- Have expertise in treating blood-related diseases
- Apply the latest treatment protocols, and be willing to go beyond standard protocols to try innovative approaches to treat your specific disease
- Work alongside clinical experts from many disciplines to provide you with the most thorough, integrated care possible
The Hematology Oncology Department at CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern) provides advanced medical therapies, including stem cell transplantation, for patients with various types and stages of hematologic disease.
The Hematologic Oncology Team
Dr. Istvan Redei serves as Director of the Stem Cell Transplant and Cell Therapy Program at Midwestern.
Dr. Redei and his team, including Dr. Syed Abutalib, are dedicated to fighting hematologic malignancies with advanced and innovative medicine. They use leading treatment protocols, and think "outside the box,” to provide promising options and individualized care for each patient.
“We are constantly looking for the best therapy for treating each patient and his or her particular disease,” says Dr. Redei. “We monitor each patient’s treatment to see how he or she is responding to the treatment. Depending on how the patient responds, we may modify the treatment to find the one that optimizes that patient’s chances for eliminating the disease.”
Your Individualized Treatment Plan
When you first visit the hospital, you’ll meet with the hematology team. Your doctor will review your medical records and determine if you need additional diagnostic testing, such as lab work or imaging tests.
Once you’ve completed any necessary testing, your doctor will meet with you, answer your questions, and present you with options. Together, we'll develop a treatment plan that works for you.
