What is a Blood and Marrow Transplant?

When diagnosed with blood cancer, treatment options may include a blood or marrow transplant (BMT), also known as a stem cell transplant.

The Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Network is one of the largest providers of blood and marrow transplants, conducting more than 1,000 transplants annually.
