Stem Cell Transplant Center
Since 1989, Baptist Centers for Cancer Care-Memphis' Stem Cell Transplant Center has focused on innovative cancer treatment using high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell support within a standardized, integrated system dedicated to transplantation by leading cancer physicians.
Delivering the most appropriate care for a specific malignant disease requires the highest level of knowledge, planning and commitment by cancer treatment physicians and their team. When that care can be given in an outpatient setting, health care costs can be substantially reduced.
Types of Transplants
Baptist Memphis offers two types of transplants:
- Autologous transplants - a patient with a malignant disease receives his or her own bone marrow/stem cells, which have been collected and cryopreserved (frozen).
- Allogeneic transplants - a patient with a malignant disease receives bone marrow/stem cells from a related or unrelated donor.
