When would you need a BMT?
A BMT is required when your healthy bone marrow has been damaged by cancer or similar diseases, accidents or too much chemotherapy. Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside your cells that has multiple important functions.
Bone marrow creates the following parts of your body
- Red blood cells : This carry and circulate oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
- White blood cells : This helps the body fight infections and is the main controller of immunity.
- Platelets : This helps stop excessive blood loss by initiating by blood clotting process.
The procedure of Bone Marrow Transplant is similar to a blood transfusion. In case of an allogeneic transplant, bone marrow cells will be extracted from the donor a few days prior to the actual procedure. For those whose own cells are being used in the operation, the cells will be retrieved from the stem cell bank. Our Oncology experts have an excellent record of resuscitating and operating on patients with serious complications arising from cancer. Having a patient-centric motto, it’s always our utmost priority to make sure the patient is never too uncomfortable, and only after ensuring their comfort and well-being, we proceed further with our treatment procedures.
