Aug 17, 2022
In a bone marrow transplant (BMT), unhealthy blood-forming cells (stem cells) in the bone marrow are replaced with healthy ones. It is a non-surgical procedure as the new cells are injected into the bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) catheter or tube, similar to how blood or medicines are injected. Also known as stem cell transplant, this procedure is required for patients whose bone marrow stops working and does not produce enough healthy blood cells. BMT is done either after radiation and/or chemotherapy.

Depending on the source of stem cells, there are two types of bone marrow transplants - autologous transplant (cells sourced from your body) and allogeneic transplant (cells sourced from a donor). At Manipal Hospitals, Jaipur, we offer BMT procedures for both types.
Treatment and Procedure
At Manipal Hospitals, Jaipur, we have a team of proficient surgeons who provide excellent treatment and care for patients who need a bone marrow transplant. We offer all types of bone marrow transplants:
When the stem cells for transplant come from our own body, it is called an autologous transplant. Doctors may salvage your stem cells from bone marrow or blood before cancer treatment starts and restore them after the treatment. The autologous transplant helps the body retain its ability to produce the required blood cells and fight infections.
When the stem cells for transplant come from a donor, it is called an allogeneic transplant. The patient receives the donor's stem cells after undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. In most cases, the new stem cells identify and destroy the cancer cells remaining in the body, treating cancer. The donor's blood proteins, human leukocyte antigens (HLA), have to match yours for a donation to be possible.
For those patients who are unable to find a suitable donor, we also have other options:
In this procedure, umbilical cord blood is used to harvest stem cells for transplantation. The blood that remains in the umbilical cord after a baby is born is known as umbilical cord blood. Modern facilities allow the storage of umbilical cord cells and blood.
The cells from blood relatives, such as parents, children, and siblings, who are not an exact match but share a 50% resemblance, are often used by doctors for bone marrow transplants.

Bone marrow is a spongy tissue inside your bones that makes blood cells. A bone marrow transplant is a procedure to replace the blood-forming cells (stem cells). First, the patient receives chemotherapy, radiation, or both, to kill cancer cells and healthy cells in the bone marrow. Then, the patient receives new stem cells through an IV. The new stem cells make healthy blood cells. To know more, visit the best bone marrow transplant hospital in Jaipur.
