Bone marrow transplants at Primary Children's are available for hematologic malignancies, brain tumors, solid tumors, aplastic anemia, severe primary immune deficiencies, and other conditions for which bone marrow transplant is indicated.
During the inpatient portion of the bone marrow transplantation process, children stay in the Immunocompromised (ICS) Unit, which is equipped with highly sophisticated air filtering and environmental monitoring systems.
