Bone Marrow Transplant (also called Stem Cell Transplant)

  • Dr. Philip McCarthy speaks to members of the Leukemia Team at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center

Roswell Park offers the most experienced adult blood and marrow transplantation (BMT) service in Western New York, performing 160-180 transplants every year. Because BMT offers the best chance for curing leukemia, Roswell Park physicians who treat leukemia patients work closely with our BMT specialists in monitoring the status of all of our leukemia patients and identifying those who might benefit from this lifesaving option. Planning ahead ensures that everything will be in order if you should need a transplant. This is especially important if you will need to find a donor.
