Bone Marrow Breakthrough: Sean's Story
The Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Program at St. Louis Children's Hospital, the first in Missouri created exclusively for children, has been in operation since 1991. The program provides both autologous (self) and allogeneic (related and unrelated) bone marrow transplants for lymphomas, leukemias, immunodeficiencies, metabolic disorders, and a variety of solid tumors.
Part of a national consortium of hospitals in pediatric oncology, St. Louis Children's Hospital utilizes the latest in treatment protocols and actively participates in national clinical trials thus offering "cutting edge" technologies to the children we serve.
Our Bone Marrow Transplant Program treats malignant and non-malignant conditions as well as autoimmune disease.
