MEDSTARS SAYS

Paneesha is based in Birmingham and his approach to patient care is detailed and holistic. He is an expert in the treatment and management of blood cancers. He understands patient concerns and takes into account their psychological well being especially once their blood cancer is in remission, which can be a stressful time. He is an advocate for the cancer survivorship model which looks to improve the experience and reported outcomes of care for cancer patients following initial treatment.

EDUCATION

University of Mysore 1993

LANGUAGES

English


I graduated from Mysore University in 1993 and obtained a postgraduate qualification in general medicine from Bombay University in 1996. I completed my specialist training in haematology from the West Midlands Deanery following initial training at the Royal Free and the Royal Marsden Hospitals. I undertook a period of research in myeloma and venous thrombosis at Warwick University. I was appointed as a consultant haematologist in March 2007 at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust. My main interests are malignant haematology, stem cell transplantation and venous thrombosis. I have published research in top international haematology journals and I take part in a large number of trials in haemato-oncology, as well as being a principal investigator or co-investigator for a number of trials at my institution. I have significant experience in the treatment of haematological malignancies including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma, investigation of thrombosis risk factors and inherited thrombophilia and stem cell transplantation.
