MUSC’s Pediatric Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant program is the only one in South Carolina. MUSC Children's Hospital provides specialized care for pediatric patients. In 1990, we performed the first pediatric bone marrow transplant, and we are certified by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT). Our excellent standard of care and innovative therapeutic options offer hope to children throughout the state and the Southeast. Our program is ranked in the top third of all programs in the National Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium.
Our Pediatric Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant program provides curative therapy for a broad range of illnesses, including:
- Aplastic anemia
- Sickle cell anemia
- Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes
- Brain tumors
Personalized approach - Based on the latest knowledge about transplantation, Hollings Cancer Center's pediatric program offers proven approaches developed around each patient's condition and risk factors. Our care is comprehensive and personal.
Excellent support resources - Our multidisciplinary team includes coordinators, social workers and child life specialists who support the children and their families emotionally throughout the transplant process.
Innovative treatments - New treatment protocols are being developed rapidly, and Hollings' pediatric program is at the forefront of bringing these new techniques to our patients.
State-of-the-art facilities - Our pediatric inpatient unit is technologically advanced, with seven rooms designed for immuno-suppressed patients. These new rooms use the same sophisticated air filtration and pressure system found in our operating rooms.
