Bone Marrow Transplant Survivorship Program

The Bone Marrow Transplant Survivorship Program addresses the unique needs of bone marrow transplant patients. Our goal is to work with you and your primary care provider to help you live your best life. We will:

  • Give you a treatment summary and follow-up plan
  • Arrange appointments for any needed tests or imaging
  • Monitor for delayed side effects or complications of previous cancer treatments
  • Talk with you about wellness
  • Provide any needed referrals for rehabilitation, support groups or other services

How the program works

We typically see patients on the first and third Tuesdays of each month between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Appointments are scheduled about two months in advance so we can gather and review your medical records. This enables us to develop a detailed, individual care plan.

You can request an evaluation if you had a bone marrow transplant — at the Knight Cancer Institute or another center — at least one year ago. We will ask for the names of your primary care provider and your oncologist, eye doctor, dentist and any other specialists you see.

At your appointment, we will go over: 

  • Your treatment and follow-up plan
  • Immunity and infections
  • The risk of cancer as a result of cancer treatment
  • How you're adjusting professionally, socially and emotionally
  • Wellness
  • Any services you might need, such as:
    • Nutrition counseling
    • Genetic counseling
    • Support group referral
    • Physical therapy or alternative medicine
    • Pain control or other treatments
  • Any complications with your:
    • Eyes
    • Mouth
    • Breathing
    • Heart and circulatory system
    • Liver
    • Kidneys and urinary tract
    • Muscles, bones and joints
    • Memory and concentration
    • Hormones (thyroid function, and insulin and glucose control)
