Stem cell transplants

Blood cancers may damage blood cells in the lymph system and bone marrow, making it difficult for the body to produce new and healthy cells. As the damaged blood cells divide, they crowd out healthy cells, produce a variety of symptoms, such as fatigue, joint pain and fever, and may damage the immune system. 

To help patients with blood cancers produce new, normal cells, our doctors may recommend a stem cell transplant as part of the treatment plan. Stem cells, immature cells found in bone marrow and blood, develop into different types of cells, including blood cells. A stem cell transplant infuses healthy stem cells into the body to stimulate new bone marrow growth, suppress the disease and reduce the possibility of a recurrence. Stem cells are collected from circulating blood, also called peripheral blood.

At City of Hope Phoenix, your stem cell transplant will be managed by a board-certified hematologic oncologist. You will receive around-the-clock monitoring and care by a team of clinicians dedicated to making sure you and your family are comfortable throughout your treatment.
