The RNOH myeloma service
Myeloma patients with spinal implications have been treated for a long time within our spinal deformity unit.
We are proud to have launched our international myeloma service, which aims to be a high quality service following the latest international guidelines in the treatment of myeloma.
The patient pages provide information on what you can expect when you are seen at the RNOH. We have outlined the pathway for you. Myeloma UK is the official organisation for myeloma where you can find further information.
Also, we explain what type of treatment you may get if your spine is affected by myeloma and how we will follow up on your treatment to ensure you get back to your normal activities.
The RNOH receives clinical referrals to our specialist, tertiary neuro-musculoskeletal services from primary, secondary, and tertiary care institutions regarding both NHS and private patients.
From Monday 14 March, the RNOH Myeloma service has committed to using ‘PATHPOINT’, an electronic referral and pathway management system, for all Consultant-led referrals from secondary and tertiary care organisations.
