Our team works with referring physicians to provide advanced, comprehensive care for our patients.

MedStar Georgetown Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program 

We have built relationships with referring physicians in the region and around the country, working together to give our patients the best results possible. Our transplantation program features:

  • Dedicated transplantation specialists: When you refer patients to our program, you can feel confident they are receiving the most specialized care available. Our physicians focus exclusively on transplantation, giving us a superior level of expertise.
  • Expertise in high-risk patients: Some programs may turn patients away due to age, health, or other reasons. Our physicians have extensive experience in treating a wide range of patients considered high risk. We have experience in guiding patients safely through the transplantation process.
  • Largest bone marrow collection site: MedStar Georgetown is home to the largest collection site for the National Marrow Donor Program, a program started by the U.S. Department of Defense. This high volume gives our bone marrow experts unparalleled expertise in safe and effective bone marrow collection procedures.
