How Much Does a Bone Marrow Transplant Cost?

A bone marrow transplant is an expensive medical procedure where a patient’s diseased bone marrow cells are replaced,  This procedure is commonly performed on patients with severe illnesses such as leukemia, lymphomas and other types of anemia and immunodeficiency diseases.  Most of the time, a donor with a matching bone marrow is needed for the transplant.  In other cases, the dead bone marrow cells of the patient can be replaced by their own healthy bone marrow from other areas of the body.  Despite its high costs, the transplant is not a guarantee that the disease will not reoccur.
