University of Minnesota Health-Blood & Marrow Transplant Clinic
Indeed, they have been providing innovative care to adults in need of a blood and bone marrow transplant for 50 years. For a consultation or appointment, call 612-273-2800 (toll-free 1-888-601-0787). A blood and marrow transplant replaces a person’s abnormal stem cells with healthy ones from another person (a donor) and is most often used to treat patients with blood cancers or other blood disorders. This procedure allows the recipient to get new stem cells that work properly.
Furthermore, their researchers were the first to report the success of using a unique type of donor cells for treatment of an advanced type of leukemia in 2005. They used Natural Killer (NK) cells to successfully treat advanced acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). They continually strive to improve the safety and effectiveness of transplant therapy, to provide you and all our patients with the best possible outcomes. Finally, they comply with applicable Federal civil rights laws and Minnesota laws. They do not discriminate against, exclude or treat people differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity.
