OAHU HEMATOLOGISTS
Back to Oahu Doctors

Hematology is the branch of medicine that deals with blood and the body tissues that make it. Hence, hematologists are physicians who specialize in the treatment of blood and the blood system, including the spleen and the lymph gland. They may be internists or pathologists who further specialize in disorders of the blood.

Some of the blood disorders that are treated by a hematologist are:

Hemophilia : A rare inherited blood disorder in which blood does not clot because the person has either a low level of or no clotting factors at all. The major symptoms of hemophilia are bleeding and bruising.

Deep Vein Thrombosis : A blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body, especially in the leg or hip. Blood clots in the veins of the thigh are usually more serious than clots in the lower leg. If a clot in a vein breaks off and travels through your bloodstream, it can lodge in your lung. This is called a pulmonary embolism and is a very serious condition that can cause death. Sometimes blood clots occur near the surface of the skin. These are less serious as they cannot travel to the lungs. The major symptoms of deep vein thrombosis are swelling of the leg, pain or tenderness in the leg, increased warmth and pain in the swollen part of the leg, red or discolored skin.

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) : A bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot because of a low count of platelets, which help the blood clot and stop bleeding, in the blood. Major symptoms are bruising for no apparent reason, red spots like a rash on the skin, bleeding that is hard to stop, bleeding from the gums, nosebleeds, heavy menstrual bleeding in women, blood in urine and stool.

Pulmonary Embolism : A sudden blockage in a lung artery, usually due to a blood clot that traveled to the lung from the leg. This is a serious condition that can cause permanent damage to the lung, lack of oxygen in the blood, and damage to other organs due to the lack oxygen. Symptoms of Pulmonary Embolism include unexplained shortness of breath, chest pain that gets worse with a deep breath, or coughing up blood.

Sickle Cell Anemia : An inherited blood disease in which a person is born with affected red blood cells. Normal red blood cells are smooth and round, and move easily through blood vessels to carry oxygen to all parts of the body. In sickle cell anemia, the red blood cells are hard, sticky, and shaped like sickles. When these hard and pointed red cells go through the small blood vessels, they tend to get stuck and block the flow of blood. This causes pain, damage, and a low blood count or anemia. Symptoms of Sickle Cell Anemia include anemia, pain in any part of the body, fatigue, paleness, yellowish skin and eyes, and shortness of breath.

Thalassemia : An inherited blood disorder in which the genes that code for hemoglobin are either missing or different than the normal genes. This causes mild or severe anemia due to reduced hemoglobin and fewer red blood cells than normal. The symptoms for Thalassemia are fatigue, paleness, dark urine, protruding abdomen with enlarged spleen or liver, abnormal facial bones and poor growth in children.
