BLK-Max Super speciality hospital is known to offer world-class care for bone marrow and stem cell transplant in order to improve long-term outcomes for patients with blood cancers and other blood-related disorders. We offer comprehensive patient-centric care to both adults and paediatric patients.
Our trained haematologists perform hundreds of bone marrow and stem cell transplants every year. The state-of-the-art transplant facilities offered at BLK-Max are second to none. We have streamlined the transplant process by providing cutting edge inpatient and outpatient services.
Peripheral blood stem cell transplantation is among the greatest success stories in cancer care and has boosted cure rated for some of the critical cancers from zero to nearly 90%.
Peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplantation is one of the most secure non-invasive ways of collecting blood-forming cells from the circulating (peripheral) blood. The same blood-forming cells are found in the bone marrow and are used in Bone Marrow Transplant
The donor for PBSC transplantation can be of two types. Their names are based on who gives the stem cells.
Stem cells transplant is used to treat patients with hematologic malignancies and other blood related disorders, such as:
Since it’s a crucial treatment process, a patient has to undergo various processes before the transplant to ensure high safety and better outcomes
Step 1: Pre-transplant Process: A doctor might prescribe Pre-transplant tests and procedures, where a series of tests and procedures are performed to ensure the patient’s general health and the status of the medical condition. This process of evaluation may take several days.
Step 2: Stem Cell Harvest: The blood is collected from a vein in the arm of the donor (Autologous or Allogeneic). The blood then flows into a machine that removes the stem cells from the blood and returns the remaining blood into the body of a donor through the vein in the other arm.
Step 3: Conditioning Process: The patient receives conditioning where chemotherapy or radiation therapy is used
Step- 4: Stem Cell Transplant: The patient receives a cytotoxic treatment, where the harvested stem cells are placed in the patient’s body through a blood vessel in the chest using a catheter. These stem cells then travel through the patient’s bloodstream into the bones of the body, where they tend to create new stem cells.
Step 5: Engraftment: In this process, the patient is closely monitored for the sign of the growth of new stem cells along with supportive care.
Step 6: Post Engraftment monitoring and continuation of immunosuppression
A peripheral stem cell transplant is a non-invasive way of treating various blood-related disorders. A patient has to undertake various precautions before and after the transplant.

For the patient:
Before the transplant
After the Transplant
The possible risk factors associated with a stem cell transplant for patient are caused by high dose treatment and radiotherapy. The risk factors include:
Immediate side effects
Long-term side effects
Our Stem cell transplant unit at BLK-Max Hospital offers best after transplant services to each patient under our care. These services speed up the recovery process of the donor as well as of the patient and provide comprehensive care at the time of emergency.
