Bone Marrow/ Stem Cell Transplant

Bone marrow and stem cell transplants are medical interventions crucial for treating diseases affecting the blood and immune system. In a bone marrow transplant (BMT), diseased or malfunctioning bone marrow is replaced with healthy marrow or stem cells, either from the patient (autologous) or a compatible donor (allogeneic). This process is often a last resort for conditions like leukemia, lymphoma, and aplastic anemia, where traditional treatments may be insufficient.

Stem cell transplants encompass various procedures, including BMT, using peripheral blood stem cells or cord blood. These transplants aim to restore the patient's ability to produce healthy blood cells. Prior to transplantation, patients undergo rigorous conditioning, which involves chemotherapy or radiation to eradicate diseased cells and create a suitable environment for the new cells.

Acute Leukaemia

Acute leukemia is a type of cancer that starts in the bone marrow, the soft and spongy tissue found in the center of certain bones. It is characterized by the rapid and uncontrolled production of immature blood cells (blasts). These abnormal cells crowd out normal cells in the bone marrow, leading to a decrease in the production of normal blood cells, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

Breast Cancer

Complete Management for Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women. Breast cancer can occur in both men and women, but it's far more common in women. Substantial support for breast cancer awareness and research funding has helped create advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer survival rates have increased, and the number of deaths associated with this disease is steadily declining, largely due to factors such as earlier detection, a new personalized approach to treatment and a better understanding of the disease.

Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Most cases of cervical cancer are caused by persistent infection with high-risk strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection. Regular screening and vaccination against HPV have significantly contributed to the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer.

Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a type of cancer that starts in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow and invades the blood. It is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of myeloid cells, which are a type of white blood cell. CML is often associated with a specific genetic abnormality known as the Philadelphia chromosome.


Colon Cancer

Complete Management for Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine (colon). The colon is the final part of the digestive tract. Colon cancer typically affects older adults, though it can happen at any age. It usually begins as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called polyps that form on the inside of the colon. Over time some of these polyps can become colon cancers.


Head and Neck Cancer

Complete Management for Head and Neck Cancer

Head and neck cancer refers to several types of cancers that affect the head and neck areas of the body. Head and neck cancer is more common in men and one of the most common cancers in India. These cancers are very treatable if caught early and are easily preventable. The most common causes of head and neck cancer are tobacco and alcohol use. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is also an important risk factor for some head and neck cancers.

Hemato-Lymphoid Malignancies

Hemato-lymphoid malignancies, also known as hematologic or blood cancers, encompass a diverse group of cancers that affect the blood, bone marrow, lymphatic system, and lymphoid tissues. These malignancies arise from abnormal growth and development of cells within these systems. The major types of hemato-lymphoid malignancies include leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.

Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Hodgkin's lymphoma, formerly known as Hodgkin's disease, is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system, which is part of the body's immune system. It is characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells, large abnormal cells, in the lymph nodes.


Lung Cancer

Complete Management for Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lungs. Your lungs are two spongy organs in your chest that take in oxygen when you inhale and release carbon dioxide when you exhale. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide.

Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer that affects plasma cells, a type of white blood cell that produces antibodies (immunoglobulins) to help the body fight infection. In multiple myeloma, cancerous plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. This condition can lead to bone damage, impaired immune function, and other complications.

Non - Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system, which is a part of the body's immune system. Unlike Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma does not typically involve the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. Instead, it encompasses a diverse group of lymphomas that originate from different types of lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell.


Ovarian Cancer / Uterus Cancer / CA Cervix

Complete Management for Ovarian Cancer / Uterus Cancer / CA Cervix

Ovarian cancer is a growth of cells that forms in the ovaries. It is usually detected in late stages. The cells multiply quickly and can invade and destroy healthy body tissue. The female reproductive system contains two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus.


Rectal Cancer

Complete Management for Rectal Cancer

Rectal cancer is cancer that begins in the rectum. The rectum is the last several inches of the large intestine. It starts at the end of the final segment of your colon and ends when it reaches the short, narrow passage leading to the anus. Cancer inside the rectum (rectal cancer) and cancer inside the colon (colon cancer) are often referred to together as "colorectal cancer."


Stomach Cancer

Complete Management for Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer is an abnormal growth of cells that begins in the stomach. The stomach is a muscular sac located in the upper middle of your abdomen, just below your ribs. Your stomach receives and holds the food you eat and then helps to break down and digest it.

Dr. Ritu Jain is a wonderful doctor. Even though she treats a disease whose diagnosis is very daunting, she has the knack to keep you at peace rather than making you scared, even more. She will guide you through it correctly and not over medicate. She combines spiritual and medical healing together because she understand the need for a combination of both. She painstakingly answers all your questions without any hurry. I highly recommend her as an oncologist.

I would like to thank Dr. Ritu Jain and her team for creating and managing such a wonderful team at BMT . I can not thank enough Dr. Ritu and her entire team for handling my case making sure there were no complications. Right from the Doctors/ Brothers/ Sisters/ Maushi and Mama’s each and everyone was extremely committed as well as compassionate throughout the treatment. This certainly is a big task during long stay for any BMT patient. I would like to thank each and everyone for making me comfortable during my treatment. I would also like to specifically mention Jaslok Hospital management and their values which is treatment oriented rather than BILLING ORIENTED… which has become common practice as per my own experience in few of the Hospitals… At no point of time I felt that any of the hospital department was trying to make money out of us. I can only say …Thank you and Please keep up the good work 🙏.
