Pediatric Allogeneic Blood and Marrow Transplantation

The Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) at Children’s is a leader in providing allogeneic blood and marrow transplantations for children with a variety of disorders. The first allogeneic BMT was performed at Children’s in 1988. Since then, the BMT transplantation team has performed nearly 500 allogeneic blood and marrow transplantations. Children’s patients have access to cutting-edge treatments through several clinical trials for allogeneic blood and marrow transplantation.

In addition, the Patient and Family Support Program provides comprehensive mental and psychosocial services and helpful resources for all patients treated in Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, as well as patients’ parents and siblings.

Although Children’s oncologists refer many patients for allogeneic transplant, the Children’s transplant team also works with subspecialists at other hospitals in the region and across the country to provide the transplant-related portion of a patient's treatment. Once that part of the treatment is complete, patients return to the care of their subspecialist for either further treatment or follow-up. The transplant doctors at Children’s remain available to treat, or help the subspecialist treat, any transplant-related complications.
