Blood & Marrow Transplant Clinic
U.S. News Best Hospitals

The UCSF Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Clinic provides follow-up care for returning bone marrow transplant patients who have undergone treatment for cancer, such as leukemia and lymphoma as well as diseases of the immune system at the hospital.

BMT patients are seen on Wednesday mornings at the Pediatric Treatment Center which is a specially designed area where outpatient chemotherapy infusions and procedures are performed in a comfortable environment. The center is staffed by nurses trained in administering chemotherapy and hematological products. There are several private rooms, where procedures such as spinal taps and blood draws are performed, and a larger area with four reclining infusion chairs. Each room has a TV and there is a play area stocked with a variety of books, toys and videos.

In 2012, UCSF's Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant program was named an "over performer" for allogeneic stem cell transplants for the second consecutive year by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research. Designated "over performers" exceed expectations for patient survival rates. The designation was based on the number of transplants performed annually, adjusted for risk, and then the chance for survival one year after transplant was estimated.

Nationwide, the estimated chance of survival after one year was 78.6 percent, compared with the UCSF Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Program survival rate of 88.6 percent. Out of 169 BMT programs in the country, just 10 were named over performers. UCSF's BMT program therefore ranks in the top 6 percent in the nation.
