Bone Marrow Transplant

Overview

Department of Bone Marrow Tansplant, BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals Bangalore

On behalf of the Bone Marrow transplant team, we offer you a warm welcome. We are pleased to inform you about our program. Bone marrow refers to the soft, spongy tissue inside the bones. These tissues are responsible for the formation of blood-forming cells (blood stem cells). The different types of blood cells include:

  • White blood cells to tackle infections
  • Red blood cells transport oxygen across the body
  • Platelets for clot formation to control bleeding

Blood forming cells are also present in bloodstreams and the umbilical cord. A bone marrow transplant is a process performed for replacing unhealthy bone marrow with healthy bone marrow. BGS Gleneagles Global Hospital is one of the best hospitals for bone marrow transplant surgery at Bangalore.

The centre is dedicated to early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of bone marrow related health issues. The Department seeks to be a centre of utmost excellence, offering comprehensive and cutting-edge services related to the different stages of a bone marrow transplant. Bone marrow transplantation is performed when someone's marrow is unhealthy and stops functioning correctly. The reason for unhealthy functioning can be chronic infections, blood disease, or cancer treatments. There are mainly two different types of a bone marrow transplant, namely Autologous and Allogeneic. The type of operation done will depend on the disease of the patient. Various tests are performed before the surgery to decipher the type of transplant needed. The transplant can take up to a week. The transplant surgery is similar to a blood transfusion. The stem cells from the donor are transferred to the patient in fluid form. 

Our panel has one of the best bone marrow transplant specialists in Bangalore, who are internationally trained. They guide the patients and caretakers through every step from initial assessment to diagnosis and treatment. The treatments are personalized to suit the needs of the patients. Expert guidance on diet and lifestyle changes is provided for their wholesome health.

Doctors often use the term rescue instead of transplant for it. BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals is one of the best hospitals for autologous bone marrow transplant in Bangalore.

Other donors may include parents, unrelated donors found by national bone marrow registries, etc. BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals is one of the best hospitals for allogeneic bone marrow transplant in Bangalore.
  • Umbilical cord cell transplant: Stem cells are extracted from the umbilical cord as soon as the infant is delivered.
