About the Program¬†
The Marrow Transplant Unit provides hematopoietic transplant services for Veterans in need of stem cell (or marrow) transplants.¬† Your physician at your local VA medical center will send a referral packet to VA Central Office where it will be looked at by the Transplant Review Board.¬† Once you have been accepted for transplant you will go to one of the three VA centers that provide stem cell transplants for evaluation.¬† This includes the VA Puget Sound Marrow Transplant Unit.
