Bone Marrow Transplant

A bone marrow transplant, more commonly known as a stem cell transplant, replaces damaged bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells.

Bone marrow is a spongy tissue found in the hollow centres of some bones. It contains specialist stem cells which produce the body’s blood cells.

Stem cells in bone marrow produce three important types of blood cells:

  • red blood cells – which carry oxygen around the body
  • white blood cells – which help fight infection
  • platelets – which help stop bleeding
