The Stem Cell Transplant Center at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's performs autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants (also called bone marrow transplants) to treat and support the treatment of pediatric cancers, blood disorders, and other conditions. We are one of the largest and most experienced pediatric stem cell transplant programs in the world, performing more than 100 transplants per year. Our team includes doctors and scientists who are leaders in pediatric stem cell transplantation, as well as nationally known pediatric subspecialists. Our state-of-the-art stem cell transplant facility is designed specifically for children and teens undergoing stem cell transplant — minimizing their exposure to harmful toxins and germs without preventing their freedom to leave their room or interact with family and friends.
Highlights of our Stem Cell Transplant Center include:
Providing care and advocacy for survivors of childhood cancer through ongoing education, support and research on the long-term effects of cancer treatments.
Through clinical trials and research, Dana-Farber/Boston Children's is at the forefront of the gene therapy evolution.
A specialized program for patients receiving cancer treatment who have experienced a decrease or loss of reproductive function.
Our international coordinators can guide you through the process of becoming a patient and traveling to us from outside the United States.
