About this doctor:

Bone marrow transplantation is a potentially life-saving treatment for patients with hematologic cancers, bone marrow failure and congenital syndromes affecting blood production. At its core, bone marrow transplantation is a powerful immune therapy which relies on the donor immune system to recognize and eliminate the malignant cells. At Keck Medicine of USC, we specialize in the newest bone marrow transplantation techniques to identify the best donors, including using half-matched (haploidentical) family members. We employ an innovative approach to preventing graft-versus-host-disease in order to improve the long-term outcome of bone marrow transplantation. This is a complex science, and clinicians and patients must work together closely to create a tight partnership to select the appropriate candidates, chemotherapy regimens, donors, and post-transplantation management. We use a team based-approach to use the best science and best hospital care to bring maximum benefit to our patients.
