Blood & Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation Program
Welcome to the Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation Program at The Cancer Center. We recognize that the prospect of undergoing a transplant may be daunting, therefore, we intend to make you and your loved ones as comfortable as possible during every step of treatment and aftercare.
The Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation Program at The Cancer Center is one of the 10 largest in the United States, with more than 300 transplants performed here each year. The program's medical team delivers the latest, most advanced care; conducts international clinical research trials; and innovates cutting-edge treatment approaches. Our stem cell transplantation team has trained and/or practiced at many of the leading transplantation centers in the nation, including the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Over the past two decades, blood and marrow stem cell transplants have offered new hope to people with cancer, blood diseases, and immune deficiency conditions. Stem cell transplantation has matured progressively from being an experimental treatment to one that is standard for many types of cancer and serious blood disorders. In recent years, the techniques involved in blood and marrow stem cell transplantation and their success rates have improved significantly. Many of the advancements in the way transplantation is performed and the procedure's ability to bring about a cure have been accomplished due to the innovative clinical trials and research studies that take place every day at the John Theurer Cancer Center.
