Blood and Marrow Transplantation
The joint UC San Diego / Sharp HealthCare program is the largest blood and marrow transplant (BMT) program in San Diego, one of the largest in California, and a national leader in physician expertise and state-of-the-art treatment. Studies have shown that the best patient outcomes occur in centers that perform a high volume of specific medical procedures, such as BMT.
