If your medical team has suggested that you consider a bone marrow transplant, a specialist in the Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program at Moffitt Cancer Center can help you decide whether this complex treatment is the right next step for you. As a National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) transplant and collection center, Moffitt performs transplants to treat cancers that affect blood-forming tissues, such as leukemia and lymphoma, as well as to restore stem cells that were damaged or destroyed by high-dose chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
At Moffitt, we believe that cancer treatment must be highly individualized to reach its full potential. Therefore, we will provide you with opportunities to work one-on-one with a blood and bone marrow transplant specialist. But, you will also benefit from multiple expert opinions throughout your treatment journey. That’s because we emphasize teamwork, knowing that our accomplishments as a group can far exceed those of any single team member working alone. Through our unique multispecialty approach, we are able to help our patients find better outcomes and quality of life.
Each specialist on Moffitt’s multispecialty Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy team focuses exclusively on blood and bone marrow transplants. These experienced medical professionals include:
- Advanced practice providers
- Transplant coordinators
- Clinical trial coordinators
- Social workers
- Apheresis specialists
Throughout the transplant process, a BMT transplant specialist will see you on a daily basis to perform examinations, evaluate your progress, keep you informed and answer any questions you may have. Remember, you will be one of the most important members of your treatment team, and we will encourage you to maintain an active role throughout your transplant and recovery process.
