The Centre of Excellence in Immunology at Aster CMI Hospital specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of various kinds of diseases that afflict the immune system. This includes several types of primary immune deficiency disorders and rheumatologic diseases of childhood. Dr Sagar Bhattad, the consultant-in-charge of Immunology services is the first DM in the field of Pediatric Immunology and Rheumatology in India. He received his training at the prestigious Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh. He has expertise in the management of immune deficiency diseases, HIV/AIDS and rheumatologic diseases.
The unit has a vast experience in treatment of childhood onset arthritis. Intra-articular injections are being administered by the experts in the unit and a large number of children with arthritis respond to this form of therapy.
The Immunology and Rheumatology services are closely linked with the Pediatric services. Thus children with complex diseases are taken care by a team of pediatricians, neonatologists, intensivists, immunologist/rheumatologist, neurologist, hepatologist, gastro-enterologist and hematologist. A wholesome care is thereby delivered at Aster CMI hospital to every young soul.
