Bone marrow transplant is a medical procedure performed to replace bone marrow that has been damaged or destroyed by disease, infection, or chemotherapy. Bone marrow transplants may use cells from your own body (autologous transplant) or from a donor (allogeneic transplant).

Types of Bone Marrow Transplant

There are five major types of bone marrow transplants. The type performed will depend on the reason you need a transplant.

  • Ablative (myeloablative) treatment
  • Reduced intensity treatment
  • Autologous bone marrow transplant
  • Allogeneic bone marrow transplant
  • Umbilical cord blood transplant

Donor Stem cells can be collected in two ways:

Bone Marrow harvest

This minor surgery is done under general anesthesia. This means the donor will be asleep and pain-free during the procedure. The bone marrow is removed from the back of both hip bones. The amount of marrow removed depends on the weight of the person who is receiving it.

Leukapheresis

First, the donor is given several days of shots to help stem cells move from the bone marrow into the blood. The part of white blood cells that contains stem cells is then separated in a machine and removed to be later given to the recipient. The red blood cells are returned to the donor.
