Duke Children's Health Center Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic

Open
Type:Duke University Hospital Outpatient Department
Hospital-based clinics are outpatient departments of an individual Duke hospital and have additional facility charges. Some insurance companies process bills with a deductible and coinsurance rather than as a co-pay as for an office visit. This may impact the amount of the bill you are responsible for after payment from your insurance plan. Check with your insurance company before your visit to determine what your responsibility will be.

Our clinic offers the most advanced treatments for children and young adults with a wide range of severe and life-threatening illnesses including cancer, inherited bone marrow failure syndromes, immune deficiencies, hemoglobinopathies, a variety of inherited metabolic diseases, and more. Our team of experienced providers follow your child from their first appointment through survivorship to ensure consistent, individualized, and comprehensive care.

About Us

Our internationally recognized pediatric stem cell and cellular therapy program was established in 1990, and we performed the world’s first unrelated umbilical cord blood transplant in a child with Fanconi’s anemia. More than 2,200 transplants later, we offer a comprehensive program for children and young adults with over 100 unique diagnoses.

Our team includes board-certified transplant and immunotherapy doctors, hematology-oncology and transplant and cellular therapy fellows, specially trained nurses, research coordinators, social workers, pharmacists, psychologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, child life specialists, translators, and family support professionals. We work closely with Duke pediatric specialists to care for patients who have additional medical problems or experience complications after transplantation.
