Specialty surgeon complete packaged procedure for allogeneic bone marrow transplant.
Allogeneic bone marrow transplant: ‘Allo’ means ‘other.’ Stem cells are removed from another person, called a donor. Most times, the donor must have the same genetic makeup as the patient, so that their blood is a ‘match’ to yours.
In an allogeneic bone marrow transplant, special blood tests are done to determine if a donor is a good match for you. A brother or sister is most likely to be a good match. However, sometimes parents, children, and other relatives may be good matches. Donors who are not related to the patient may be found through national bone marrow registries.
Treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
