Bone Marrow Transplantation
Improving Your Child’s Chance of Living a Healthy Life
At Florida Hospital for Children, our division of pediatric stem cell transplantation (SCT) provides a full range of services for patients requiring stem cell transplantations. In fact Florida Hospital for Children boasts the only pediatric stem cell transplantation program in Central Florida. We offer comprehensive services including pre-transplantation consultation and evaluation, education, social services and post-transplant follow up and care.
We understand that having to deal with cancer and other blood diseases can be overwhelming both physically and mentally. This is true not only for the child, but for the entire family as well. That’s why we are committed to providing comprehensive care through our integrated, interdisciplinary teams that deliver specialized treatment, as well as in our unique Disney®-themed healing environment where we deliver our special brand of kid care.
