Pediatric Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplantation

Many patients come to the transplant(1) program at Children's National because of its excellent reputation in the field of pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT). Children's patients have access to cutting-edge treatments through several clinical trials for 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 autologous transplant patients, Children’s transplant program also works with oncologists 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 oncologist for either further treatment or follow-up. The transplant doctors at Children’s remain available to treat, or help the oncologist treat, any transplant-related complications.
