Blood and Marrow Transplant Center

Roswell Park’s Blood and Marrow Transplant (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.

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 2,200 transplants to treat patients globally, and our program is growing.

Superior outcomes for our Canadian BMT patients

Since 2009, Roswell Park’s Blood and Marrow Transplant Program has had one-year survival rates higher than expected as calculated by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research.

Barbara Bambach with Pediatric Patient

Pediatric BMT patients are treated by pediatric-trained BMT physicians. We team up with John R. Oishei 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.

BMT Patient Education

Our Introduction to Allogeneic BMT and Introduction to Autologous BMT manuals contain important, useful information for patients and caregivers.

Roswell Park is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.


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.
