“I work in the Department of Hematology and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation. What I like most about my work is regular – not episodic, but regular – treatment of patients with the most severe diseases, the most aggressive types of cancer. And we help them become healthy again.
I specialize in the treatment of blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma. Besides, I carry out stem cell transplantation procedures. They are mostly recommended for blood cancer patients.
Ask Professor Naparstek a Question
Our department is one of the largest transplantation centers in the country. On average, we annually perform about 100 stem cell transplantation procedures. As for professional competence, many doctors’ experience is measured in decades. Only a few clinics employ such experienced physicians that specialize in stem cell transplantation in particular.
In my opinion, our medical center successfully combines advanced scientific research and attention to the patient as a person. We truly see the person, not only the disease, and we need this person’s help to be able to fight cancer together.”
