It is the hope of the Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) team that the BMT program at Saint Francis Hospital is synonymous with hope for our patients and their families. Transplant has been a treatment option at Saint Francis Hospital since 1987.
For many patients with hematologic malignancies and solid tumors, blood and marrow transplantation is the only curative option. It is used to treat many types of cancer including leukemia, breast cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, ovarian cancer, Hodgkin’s disease and other selected cancers and bone marrow disorders. It is also used to treat non-cancerous disorders, such as aplastic anemia and severe combined immunodeficiency diseases. Transplantation is not an experimental treatment. It has been performed worldwide for over 20 years.
Because the Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program at Saint Francis is affiliated with many national research programs, patient options include the latest innovations in cancer treatment. The program is committed to working with local physicians and community hospitals to strengthen cancer services in communities throughout Oklahoma.
Saint Francis is also a designated center for the National Bone Marrow Registry for donor harvest and shares data with the International Bone Marrow Transplant Registry.
