Stem Cell Transplant Clinic
The Stem Cell Transplant Clinic evaluates and treats patients with leukemia, lymphoma, myleoma and other blood disorders who need bone marrow, stem cell or umbilical cord blood transplants.
New patient evaluations are similar to typical doctor's office visits, but also includes:
- Insurance verification for HLA (human leukocyte antigen) testing, which helps match donors and recipients
- Information on donor testing
Once a graft source (the source of the cells) is identified, patients have another appointment at the clinic, where they talk with an RN nurse coordinator, the doctor, a social worker, a pharmacist and a psychologist. Patients learn about the clinic's team approach to care and the steps in the treatment process.
Patient will return for 3-6 additional visits during the screening phase.
The transplant is performed in the hospital in an inpatient setting.
