In an autologous transplant, a patient’s healthy blood stem cells are collected from their own body and are used by our experts to replace diseased or damaged bone marrow. The patient is the donor and the receiver simultaneously. The process is known as Autologous Stem Cell Transplant or Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant. The Autologous Transplant Unit is a part of the Centre for Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant at Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital and provides comprehensive medical, diagnostic and surgical services to patients affected by a range of blood disorders. Our approach to treating patients with diseases related to blood is developed around each patient’s unique medical requirements.
