Superior patient care
Patients receiving care with the Stanford Blood and Marrow Transplant Program have access to the full complement of specialist doctors within the medical center, including many who are nationally recognized. Although most of our patients are from California, others travel from throughout the United States and some from other countries to seek care from the Stanford Blood and Marrow Transplant Program. Our blood and bone marrow transplantation treatment process is highly interdisciplinary.
The doctors in the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program have extensive blood and bone marrow transplant experience and are dedicated to the care of patients undergoing transplantation. Our doctors focus exclusively on blood and bone marrow transplant, enabling them to provide the best possible care while incorporating innovation and new research to improve treatment outcomes.
