Bone Marrow Transplant

Bone marrow transplants are often used in conjunction with other therapies to treat patients with leukemia and other cancers of the blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, as well as some types of blood and immune disorders.

Also known as stem cell transplants, bone marrow transplants transfer normal, mature stem cells from adults into patients who need them.

Program Highlights

The UT Southwestern Medical Center Bone Marrow Transplant program is recognized as one of the country’s top programs and stands out among other health care providers in the region for hematologic malignancies.

With more than 1,200 transplants performed, we are No. 1 in North Texas for one-year survival rates and recognized as a National Center of Excellence by all major national insurance carriers. We’re affiliated with UT Southwestern’s Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only cancer center in North Texas designated by the National Cancer Institute.

In addition, the program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy, which recognizes bone marrow transplant programs for top-quality patient care in cellular therapies.

Experts with Deep Experience

Our experienced and highly skilled team has performed more than 1,200 bone marrow transplants – both autologous (using a patient’s own cells) and allogeneic (using donor cells) – with patients ranging in age from early adulthood to those in their early 70s.

The team also performs haploidentical and cord blood transplantation, making transplantation a viable option for many more patients than in the past.

“We manage patients at all stages of their care, from initial diagnosis through an individualized treatment plan. Our physicians are true experts and are focused on ensuring that we provide the most effective and up-to-date care possible.”
