The transplant procedure involves taking cells that are found in the bone marrow (stem cells), filtering those cells, and giving them back either to the donor (patient) or to another person. The goal of transplantation is to transfuse healthy bone marrow cells into a person after their own unhealthy bone marrow is treated to kill the abnormal cancer cells.
The decision to undergo a bone marrow transplant starts with an extensive evaluation by the transplant team. This team of specialists works together before, during and after the procedure to ensure your best chance for a successful transplant.
