After Your Visit

After your initial visit, your history will later be presented to the entire Blood and Marrow Transplant Program team. The team will work together and determine – based on your disease, history and other factors – the BEST treatment option we can offer you. In some cases, this means that your treatment plan my change from what was presented to you on your first visit. If you proceed with transplantation your Blood and Marrow Transplant Program Nurse Coordinator will facilitate your pre-transplant testing, establish your treatment schedule and help coordinate your care.
