Weill Cornell Bone Marrow Transplant Program

Referring Physicians

Thank you for referring your patient with cancer and blood diseases in need of a stem cell transplant. When referring a new patient you will be put into contact with an attending physician who can discuss the case in detail with you. Please call (212) 746-2048 to refer a patient.

The decision on determining whether a stem cell, umbilical cord or bone marrow transplant will be of benefit to your patient is a complex one. Our transplant team provides superb care and has access to the latest clinical research. We are fortunate to have renowned leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma experts who are intimately involved in the decision process. NewYork-Presbyterian is consistently ranked among the very best hospitals in the nation. If complications arise, we can therefore count on the help of some of the best experts in a variety of disciplines including infectious diseases, pulmonary and gastroenterology.

We are happy to provide services in the following areas:


Multiple options are available, including;

  • autologous and allogeneic bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
  • cord blood transplantation including haplo-cord transplantation, a procedure with rapid hematopietic recovery
  • matched unrelated donor stem cell transplantation
  • non-ablative “mini” transplants (“bridge” transplant procedure to reduce tumor burden in patients with refractory leukemia)

Once the transplant procedure and recovery has been completed, the patient will be referred back to your continuing care. We participate in the National Donor Matching Program.

Special Programs

  • Novel strategies to mobilize stem cells and improve transplantation for patients with multiple myeloma, leukemia and lymphoma
