Today’s Discovery: Bone marrow transplantation

Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is a type of therapy for patients with cancer and other diseases that affect the bone marrow.

BMT has been used successfully to treat diseases such as leukemias, lymphomas, multiple myeloma and immune disorders.

Vast improvements in the transplant process in recent years have led to safer transplants and have made transplants possible for more patients.

Discover how VCU Massey Cancer Center’s Bone Marrow Transplantation Program allows patients to receive any available transplant source and option without being referred elsewhere.

As the largest and most comprehensive provider in Virginia, our doctors, nurses and staff are involved in every step of the process to provide seamlessly coordinated, cutting-edge and compassionate care.
