Roswell Park’s BMT Center specialists will guide you and your loved ones through the transplant process. We’re here to help you make informed decisions; provide the most advanced, comprehensive medical care as well as emotional support; coordinate the services you’ll need before, during, and after the transplant; and continue to monitor your health into the future.

Joanne Becker, MD

We were one of the first centers in the world to routinely offer patients blood and marrow transplantation (BMT). Since 1975, we have performed more than 2,000 transplants to treat patients globally, and our program is growing.

For the fifth year in a row, survival outcomes for patients receiving allogeneic sibling and unrelated donor transplants through our BMT Center have been significantly better than would be expected in the types of patients we treat.

Barbara Bambach with Pediatric Patient

Pediatric BMT patients are treated by pediatric-trained BMT physicians. We team up with Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to provide the very best care for our young transplant patients.

Our Pathologists are Game Changers

Our pathology team can give early warning if graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), a serious complication of BMT, should develop. They can spot changes that may be caused by GVHD, and catch the disease early on, when it can be treated more easily.

Pioneering Clinical Trials

Roswell Park strives to find better ways to treat BMT through clinical trials, many of which have been pioneered and launched by our own translational research team.
