Bone Marrow Transplantations

Overview:

A bone marrow transplant is a procedure that infuses healthy blood-forming stem cells into your body to replace your damaged or diseased bone marrow. You might need a bone marrow transplant if your bone marrow stops working and does not produce enough healthy blood cells.

Why might I need a bone marrow transplant?

The goal of a bone marrow transplant is to cure many diseases and types of cancer. A bone marrow transplant may be used to:

  • Safely allow treatment of your condition with high doses of chemotherapy or radiation by replacing or rescuing the bone marrow damaged by treatment
  • Replace diseased or damaged marrow with new stem cells
  • Provide new stem cells, which can help kill cancer cells directly
