Bone Marrow Transplant

Bone Marrow Transplant

Surya Hospitals is a reputable provider of life-saving Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) operations. We recognise that dealing with a serious illness can be stressful, but our committed team of specialists is here to help you navigate this life-changing journey. 

What is a Bone Marrow Transplant?

Inside your bones is a soft, spongy tissue called bone marrow. It is essential for the production of blood cells such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A bone marrow transplant (BMT), also known as a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, is a medical operation that uses healthy stem cells to replace unhealthy or injured bone marrow. These stem cells can be collected from a donor or from your own body prior to receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

What is the Purpose of a Bone Marrow Transplant?

A bone marrow transplant (BMT) is required when the bone marrow is unable to function correctly for a variety of causes, such as:

  • Leukaemia: A malignancy of the bone marrow and blood cells
  • Aplastic Anaemia: It is a disorder in which the bone marrow does not create enough blood cells
  • Lymphoma: A malignancy of the lymphatic system that causes bone marrow malfunction
  • Inherited disorders: Disorders such as sickle cell anaemia or thalassemia that affect normal blood cell formation are categorized as inherited disorders

How is a Bone Marrow Transplant performed?

The bone marrow transplant (BMT) procedure is divided into many stages:

  • Preparatory Phase: Before the transplant, your medical team will do a battery of tests to determine your overall health and compatibility with potential donors. They may also use chemotherapy or radiation to kill the damaged bone marrow and suppress your immune system
  • Stem cell extraction: Healthy stem cells are extracted from the bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood. If an external donor is required, our experts will methodically search a registry for a matched donor or check the compatibility of family members
  • Transplantation: Similar to obtaining a blood transfusion, the collected stem cells are pumped into your bloodstream through a vein. The stem cells are subsequently transported to the bone marrow where they begin making healthy blood cells
  • Recovery and monitoring: This will take place in our specialized transplant unit following the transplant. This is an important time for your body to heal, and our staff will provide the required care, such as infection prevention, blood transfusions, and supportive therapies

Conditions necessitating a Bone Marrow Transplant

Individuals who may benefit from a bone marrow transplant (BMT) who are diagnosed with: 

  • Leukaemia: Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), or chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) are all types of leukaemia
  • Lymphoma: It is classified as either Hodgkin lymphoma or non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS): A group of blood disorders in which the bone marrow fails to create enough healthy blood cells
  • Genetic illness: Sickle cell anaemia, thalassemia, Fanconi anaemia, or severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) are inherited disorders

Care Recommendations in Order to Recover Successfully

Certain precautions must be taken during the healing phase to reduce complications and increase the chances of a successful transplant. Here are a few things to bear in mind:

  • Follow Medical Instructions: Follow your medical team’s recommendations for medications, food, physical activity, and post-transplant care
  • Infection Prevention: Use proper hygiene, keep a clean environment, avoid crowded places, and limit contact with sick people
  • Nutritional Support: To help your body heal, eat a well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains
  • Emotional Support: To cope with the emotional issues that may develop during the transplant journey, seek emotional assistance from family, friends, and support groups
  • Check-ups on a regular basis: Keep up your follow-up appointments with your healthcare provider to monitor your progress, handle any problems, and assure the best possible conclusion
