Our immunology experts at the Department of Immunology have exceptional mastery in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with a range of immunological disorders such as autoimmune disease, immunodeficiency, immunosuppression, neuro-immunology, HIV, allergy and anaphylaxis.
The Department of Immunology works collaboratively with the Departments of Rheumatology, Neurology, ENT and Infectious Diseases at Fortis Memorial Research Institute to deliver one-stop healthcare for all related disorders. As immune response and consequent inflammation form the base of many immunological conditions, the department closely investigates these processes to discover new avenues for the treatment of immune disorders.
Backed by state-of-the-art technological edge, our experts perform skin testing to aeroallergens and food allergens, skin biopsies, limited patch testing, computerized spirometry, oximetry, intravenous infusions, methacholine challenge testing, and rhinolaryngoscopy. Our interdisciplinary approach promotes enhanced collaboration and the productive transfer of results into new and effective treatments.
Our immunology services include the assessment and treatment of patients with conditions such as:
- Suspected immunodeficiency
- Antibody deficiency e.g. Common Variable Immune Deficiency (CVID)
- Hereditary angio-oedema (HAE)
- Chronic Granulomatous Disease
- Complement deficiency
- Severe Combined Immune Deficiency
- All rare primary immunodeficiency disorders
- Second immunodeficiency (not HIV)
The traditional of excellence continue in the Department, with on-going research on various immunological disorders. Our physicians perform ground-breaking work that lead to the development highly advanced and effective treatments for our patients.
Apart from our mission to transform knowledge attained from discoveries into prevention, treatment, and cure for human immune disorders, our department of immunology is dedicated to facilitating the advancement of scientific discoveries for the benefit of humankind.
Our constant quest to deliver best-in-industry patient care encourages us to gain technological edge in the healthcare domain. The department also fosters an extremely interactive approach to basic science that paves the way for the discovery of new treatments and diagnostic tests for patients with disease-specific problems, such as allergy, autoimmune diseases, chronic inflammation, cancer, infections and tissue transplant.
Moreover, as part of a world-class hospital, we can undertake latest diagnostic testing that most allergy practices cannot. Interventions such as food and drug desensitisations and challenges carry risks that FMRI is well-equipped to manage—and the patient benefits can be noteworthy.
