Mount Lebanon Hospital is proud to introduce the Bone Marrow Transplant program The BMT Program is nothing but another milestone added to the foundation of healthcare excellence that MLH is always committed to. The introduction of the BMT program places MLH on the list of the best competing healthcare institutions in the region in terms of healthcare innovations and pioneering.
“Autologous” means from yourself. An autologous BMT requires the removal or harvesting of some of your own healthy bone marrow or stem cells at a time when there is no evidence of cancer cells. This bone marrow is then frozen and stored. It will be given back to you, or transplanted after you receive high doses of cancer therapy.
Patients at MLH can now be “rescued” from the effects of high-dose chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments by replacing the destroyed bone marrow.
