What is a bone marrow transplant?

As the only fully integrated and comprehensive service of its kind in Queensland, The Wesley Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant Unit is committed to providing you or your loved one with collaborative, compassionate, all-encompassing, blood cancer care and treatment.

A bone marrow transplant is a medical treatment that replaces your bone marrow with healthy cells. The replacement cells can either come from your own body or from a donor and can be used to treat certain types of cancer, such as leukaemia, myeloma and lymphoma.

The unit, which has performed more than 1,000 transplants in the past 20 years, is a collaboration between Icon Cancer Foundation, Leukaemia Foundation, Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology and The Wesley.
