Experience in treating leukemia and other complex conditions
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood diseases (hematologists) and other specialties have extensive experience treating leukemia and many other complex conditions with bone marrow transplant or other treatments.
Other conditions also may be treated with bone marrow transplant. In primary amyloidosis, a blood disorder, abnormal proteins form in organs and tissues in your body and can affect their function. Some people with primary amyloidosis may be given chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant to treat their condition.
POEMS syndrome, a rare blood disorder that affects many of your body systems, also may sometimes be treated with chemotherapy and a peripheral blood stem cell transplant.
Doctors will evaluate you to determine if your condition would be most appropriately treated with a bone marrow transplant or other treatment.
