Bone Marrow and Blood Stem Cell Transplants
City of Hope is one of the world's largest and most successful bone marrow and blood stem cell transplant centers. As a pioneer in creating breakthrough treatments for all hematologic cancers (leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndrome) and other blood-related disorders, we are also a world leader in setting standards for stem cell transplantation and in improving long-term outcomes for both children and adults.
Our physicians have extensive experience with a wide variety of transplant procedures, having performed more than 18,000 transplants — making City of Hope one of the largest programs in the United States.
We recognize the importance of maintaining contact with all transplant patients to ensure they have optimal outcomes after their treatments have concluded. Established in 1998, our long-term follow-up program tracks patients who have received a transplant at City of Hope. Through this program, our survivors can be carefully monitored for long-term effects and given timely interventions, while our clinicians and researchers have access to data that they can use to improve cancer treatments further.
A Patient's Guide to Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation at City of Hope was developed to help our patients and their families learn about blood stem cell and bone marrow transplantation and what to expect before, during and after transplant.
The Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research Center has ranked City of Hope as an “overperforming” transplant center, and City of Hope has been the only U.S. transplant center with this recognition for over a decade.
Our expertise includes autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants and using cells derived from bone marrow, peripheral blood and cord blood.
Our transplant program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy, the standard of excellence for blood and bone marrow transplant programs in the United States.
At City of Hope, your supportive care continues long after treatment is complete. Our specialists will help you adjust to post-treatment diet and lifestyle changes, and our unique family and survivorship programs will assist you and your loved ones.
Our developments in the areas of breakthrough cancer drugs, bone marrow transplants and CAR T cell therapy are recognized internationally.
Our leadership in research and innovation continually enhances our ability to provide novel and differentiated approaches to cancer care.
