Page modified at: 28/08/2011


Haematology refers to the study and treatment of blood disorders and includes medical problems such as anaemia (including pregnancy anaemia), thrombocytopenia (low levels of platelets), clotting and bleeding disordeers and Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome including Lupus Anticoagulant (Hughes Syndrome) and also hereditary thrombophilias such as Factor V Leiden, Protein S deficiency, Protein C deficiency, Activated Protein C Resistance and others. It also includes the investigation, management and treatment of malignant blood disorders such as leukaemia and lymphoma.  Our haematology services are led by Dr Paul Bentley, Consultant Haematologist, who is based at the Spire Cardiff Hospital.

Effective haematology treatment

Haematology is the practice of studying and treating disorders associated with blood. There is a large catalogue of blood disorders that can affect the human body, each one requiring its own special treatment should a diagnosis ever be made on a patient.

Blood disorders are one of our most specialist subjects here at Innermost Secrets, and we can offer effective anaemia treatment - including if the patient is suffering from pregnancy anaemia, low levels of platelets as found in thrombocytopenia, clotting, other bleeding disorders, and more complex blood disorders such as Hughes Syndrome.

Our haematology treatment is deep-reaching and highly-professional. Based at the Spire Cardiff Hospital, we are also able to treat very serious blood disorders and conditions, including malignant conditions such as Lymphoma and Leukaemia.

Hughes Syndrome is a relatively new treatment, but once diagnosed can be treatable - to an extent. Hughes Syndrome was discovered in 1983 and its symptoms include migraines and headaches, memory loss, skin disorders, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, gastro disorders, dizziness, thrombosis, problems with pregnancy and more.

Battling Hughes Syndrome

Hughes Syndrome plays an enormous part in recurrent miscarriages. The effect of Hughes Syndrome can be a real mitigating factor whether a lady will be able to complete a full term of pregnancy or not - a woman may miscarry any number of times, sadly, before she is diagnosed with the condition. Luckily, the ailment is one of the most common treatable causes of miscarriages in women - all it takes for an accurate diagnosis is a blood sample.

The final word in haematology

Our haematology services can cover a broad spectrum of blood disorders. Thrombocytopenia is a condition whereby the number of platelets in the blood is low, usually measured by less-than 5,000 platelets every micro-litre. Typical symptoms of Thrombocytopenia are bleeding gums, nosebleeds, bruising on the forearms and more.

Thrombocytopenia can be an indicator of liver failure or Leukaemia. If it is still unclear as to why Thrombocytopenia in the patient causes a low platelet count, then a bone marrow biopsy may likely be undertaken. Treatment for Thrombocytopenia will most likely depend on the severity of the condition, and we will do all we can to help you with our incredible anaemia treatment services.

Personal and thorough anaemia treatment

Haematology is a subject very close to our hearts, and we understand that you'll want anaemia treatment and services that get to the root of your condition with friendly, personable staff who went let you down. The anaemia treatment offered by us here at Innermost Secret will strive to get to the bottom of your underlying condition, and figure out a solution that can treat the ailment in the best way possible.

Our haematology services are conducted by our experienced Consultant Haematologist who has vast knowledge of blood disorders and their treatments. At Innermost Secrets we can offer you an anaemia treatment for all the aforementioned conditions and many other disorders. Our rates are affordable and we hope to hear from you soon.
