Recognized as one of the leading programs of its kind, UT Southwestern's hematologic malignancies team has performed approximately 2,000 bone marrow transplants (also known as stem cell transplants) while achieving the best one-year survival rate for patients in North Texas.

Our highly specialized program is part of the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in North Texas.

Our Program

We provide excellent, compassionate care for patients with all types of blood cancers. From a personalized patient experience to cutting-edge treatments, discover what sets us apart.

Expert Care and Top Accolades

A bone marrow transplant replaces unhealthy bone marrow – the tissue inside bones that produces blood-forming cells ­– with healthy cells that should restore normal blood cell production. Bone marrow transplants are used to treat people with cancers of the blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, and other blood and immune disorders.

Our program at UT Southwestern is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy, which recognizes top-quality patient care. We also have been deemed a national center of excellence by all major national health insurance carriers.

Our experienced physicians, nurses, and other care providers guide patients through every step of the bone marrow transplant process. We strive to deliver the most appropriate and effective care possible, and we’re here to manage care from diagnosis to personalized treatment and beyond. 

In addition, UT Southwestern offers CAR-T therapy for the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. CAR-T is immunotherapy in which a patient’s T-cells, a type of white blood cell, are genetically modified to include a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) that is designed to bind to specific proteins on cancer cells. This reprograms the T-cells to recognize and attack the patient’s specific cancer. We are an approved site for Yescarta, Tecartus, Breyanzi, and Kymriah immunotherapies for the treatment of lymphoma. Kymriah can also be used to treat leukemia. We are an approved site for Abeca for the treatment of Myeloma.
