Duke’s Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program treats patients with more than a dozen different conditions:
The role of bone marrow transplants in the treatment of several other conditions is also being explored at Duke and other leading medical centers. These conditions include sickle cell anemia, immune deficiency disorders, and autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma and multiple sclerosis.
Many of these treatments are currently available at Duke through clinical trials.
Because bone marrow and stem cell transplantation is a rapidly changing field, new therapies, new combinations of therapies, and new data on patient outcomes are continually becoming available.
That’s why it’s important that you select a program that can provide the benefits of the latest information and treatment strategies. Even the very latest therapy, of course, isn’t necessarily the one that’s right for you.
Duke’s leadership in research goes hand in hand with a strong emphasis on patient-centered care that is appropriate, ethical, and compassionate.
Transplant team members meet weekly to review each case, looking at a patient’s experience and progress from every possible perspective. As a result, you receive the therapies that best address your particular needs, history, and concerns.
At Duke, we understand that the actual transplant you receive is just one part of a complex, sometimes difficult process.
Our clinical social workers are available to provide expert, compassionate counseling to help you and your family manage the many challenges that often arise during the course of receiving a bone marrow transplant.
These range from physical, logistical, and financial issues, to the social and emotional concerns that cancer and its treatment can bring.
We also provide extensive guidance about available community resources to meet special needs and concerns.
