Stem Cell Transplant Program

The stem cell transplant program at the TVHS Nashville campus provides services for veterans in need of stem cell transplants for treatment of hematologic malignancies. Initially, the hematology/oncology physician at the local VA medical center will send a referral packet to VA Central Office to be looked at by the Transplant Review Board. Once the patient is accepted for transplant evaluation, he/she will go to one of the three VA centers that provide stem cell transplants, one of which is located at the TVHS Nashville campus.

Services Offered

  • Allogeneic stem cell transplant: uses stem cells from a family member or an unrelated donor
  • Autologous stem cell transplant: uses the patient’s own stem cells to help with recovery following high-dose chemotherapy to treat the disease
  • Umbilical cord blood transplant: uses umbilical cord blood stem cells
  • Inpatient and outpatient services prior to, during, and after stem cell transplant
  • HLA-typing for donor matching

Contact Us

For more information about these services, contact your local hematologist/oncologist. If you have been scheduled for a transplant and wish to contact the TVHS Stem Cell Transplant Program, call (615) 873-6373.
