Blood and Marrow Transplant Program
At Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) in Dayton, Ohio, stem cell/blood marrow transplantation is an effective treatment option for many cancers including leukemia, lymphomas, multiple myeloma and a growing list of solid tumor cancers such as testicular cancer. Stem cell/blood marrow transplantation is a cancer treatment that involves the administration of high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation.
The Peripheral Stem Cell/Blood Marrow Transplant staff at MVH is here to care for you and to ease your concerns during your hospitalization. Your team includes:
- Clinical pharmacist
- Certified clinical nurse specialist
- Social worker
- Care coordinator
- Physical therapist/occupational therapist
- Home care liaison
Two transplant options are available at MVH:
- Autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
- Autologous blood marrow transplantation
The transplant course is similar in both procedures. The only difference is the source of the stem cells and how the cells are collected.
