MD Anderson's Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Center is one of the largest facilities in the world for stem cell transplants. During stem cell transplants, unhealthy bone marrow is replaced by healthy stem cells. These stem cells then develop into healthy marrow that produces different types of blood cells.
We perform more than 850 procedures for adults and children each year, more than any other center in the nation. The cancers, hematologic diseases and autoimmune disorders we treat include:
- Aplastic anemia
- Lymphoma and Hodgkin's lymphoma
- Multiple myeloma
- Myelodysplastic syndrome
- Solid tumors, including breast, ovarian and testicular cancer
- Waldenström's macroglobulinemia
As part of one the nation’s top cancer centers, we provide comprehensive stem cell transplant services. These include a clinic dedicated to monitoring and managing graft versus host disease, a condition that can arise from stem cell transplantation; and a matched unrelated donor program, which has earned us recognition as a specialized center for stem cell transplants by the National Marrow Donor Program.
We also maintain our own cell processing laboratory for preparing safe and effective tissues for transplantation and perform more than more than1,000 collections each year through our apheresis and stem cell collection unit.
I missed Christmas, New Years, Easter, birthdays and my daughter's first recital, but I'd do it all over again to be here today.
The Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Center business hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
