Blood & Marrow Transplant Program 

Blood and marrow transplants are among the most effective treatments for certain hematologic and lymphatic cancers.  Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center features one of the leading blood and bone marrow transplant (BMT) programs in the U.S. 

You may be a candidate for an adult blood stem cell or marrow transplant if you are facing a diagnosis of certain cancers, including:

  • Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • Acute lymphocytic leukemia
  • Acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Chronic myeloid leukemia
  • Severe aplastic anemia 
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia 

Program Highlights:

  • The Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) program at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas has performed more than 5,000 adult bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants in the past 30 years.
  • BMT physicians on the medical staff at Baylor Dallas performed North Texas’ first bone marrow transplant in 1983 and Texas’ first matched unrelated donor transplant in 1988.
  • Is one of the 20 highest volume BMT centers in the United States based on the number of transplants performed.
  • Participation in numerous national clinical trials, including those of the National Institutes of Health Clinical Trials Network and pivotal studies in new drug development.
  • Among the first programs in the United States to receive accreditation by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
  • A designated Center of Excellence by multiple insurance carriers.
