Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj has extensive knowledge and training in the medical field and focuses his work on refining bone marrow stem cell treatments.Present
Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj is committed to improving the use of stem cells in beneficial treatment for cancer patients. He oversees the work of the qualified professionals at the South Florida Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant Institute. The facility is located in Boynton Beach, Florida. Here he has implemented protocols that allow the majority of treatment to occur on an outpatient basis. This differs from other facilities who still treat patients on an inpatient basis.
Dr. Maharaj has found that treating patients on an outpatient basis reduces the occurrence of infections and other complications. Patients are not exposed to as many germs and bacteria that often lead to hospital-acquired infections when receiving treatment on an inpatient basis. In addition, many preventative interventions are taken to ensure safety and sanitation, and treat conditions proactively.
Patients with a variety of different cancers can find beneficial treatment through the use of stem cells. Some of the conditions that Dr. Maharaj and his staff focus on are acute and chronic lymphoblastic leukemia, acute and chronic myeloid leukemia, acute promyelocytic leukemia, germ cells tumors, both Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and mantle cell lymphoma. Bone marrow/stem cell transplantation is leading-edge treatment for these conditions.
Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj ensures that he has a highly qualified team working on each case. This includes transplant physicians, chemotherapy and transplant nurses, bone marrow/stem cell laboratory staff, pharmacists, psycho-social and nutritional consultants, and administrative personnel. Utilizing the skills and experience of each of these professionals provides for more comprehensive care and treatment. This approach has proven beneficial in providing high level results.
