What Is Bone Marrow Transplant and Cellular Therapy?
Another name for a bone marrow transplant is a stem cell transplant. Bone marrow is a spongy material found inside your bones. The main function of the bone marrow is to make stem cells that can produce blood cells. Stem cells can turn into platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells that are necessary for your body to function.
A bone marrow transplant is used to treat cancer and other blood or immune system disorders.
It replaces the cancerous or faulty cells inside your marrow with healthy ones. Our transplant team can use either your stem cells or cells from a donor.
Advantages for Pediatric and Adult Patients
The advantages of a bone marrow transplant and cellular therapy at Orlando Health include the ability to receive a transplant and follow-up care in one location with no need to travel to other cities or hospitals.
Advantages of bone marrow transplant treatment include:
- Replacement of damaged or cancerous bone marrow cells with healthy cells
- New stem cells may kill cancer cells after treatment
