Bone Marrow & Stem Cell Transplantation
High dose chemotherapy with peripheral blood and marrow cell transplant has evolved from an experimental treatment available in only a few research centers to an accepted treatment option for many types of cancer.
Compass Oncology physicians have been involved from the beginning of autologous transplant research in Oregon and Southwest Washington. If your medical oncologist determines that high dose therapy is indicated for management of your illness, you will be referred to the transplant physician who will discuss transplantation with you and your family and introduce you to the other members of the transplant team.
We partner with local hospitals accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
