Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Center
This treatment is sometimes called bone marrow transplantation and is used to treat many types of conditions affecting children and teens. While traditionally used to treat cancers and blood disorders, stem cell transplants are increasingly being used to treat a growing range of other conditions, including metabolic diseases, genetic immunodeficiencies, and other disorders.
They perform more than 90 stem cell transplants each year for children and teens with many types of cancer and other medical conditions. Their doctors work collaboratively with national research groups, including the Children’s Oncology Group, Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network as well as the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium to develop innovative clinical trials and expand transplantation for new conditions. They have an active stem cell research program which includes scientists who partner with their clinical care team to improve outcomes for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
