The Centre for Blood Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden has been in existence since 1995. To date, far more than 1,400 transplantations have been performed since its inception. At the same time, with approximately 80 predominantly allogenic (transferred from a donor to a recipient) transplantations per year, the Centre for Blood Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden is one of the largest centres of this type in the whole of Germany.
More than 1,400 transplantations also represent long years of experience, and this facilitates the professional care and gentle support of the patients at the hospital.
It should be highlighted, in particular, that, together with the necessary expertise and the outstanding specialist knowledge of the doctors, all technical and specialised requirements are available at the DKD HELIOS Hospital in Wiesbaden in order to be able to provide highly specialised and comprehensive care for transplant patients. The interdisciplinary team consists of long-standing employees, who still have a very regard for one thing: the patient is personally, holistically and comprehensively counselled and cared for at the Centre for Blood Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation. Prof. Stuhler and his team are primarily responsible for this.
With cancer conditions, it is also very important to bear in mind that by no means only the patient’s body suffers. A great deal of importance is attached to the psychosocial aspect. For this reason, the support and treatment range of the Psychosocial Service is also almost constantly available to the patients of the Centre for Blood Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation. Particularly in critical phases of life, professional psychosocial helps patients to cope with the condition better and to maintain their quality of life. The range of services is planned and undertaken in close collaboration with other professional groups involved in the treatment. The Psychosocial Service’s range is largely geared towards patients and their relatives because these can also suffer as severely from the emotional strain of a close relative’s cancer condition as the patient himself.
