                     Bone Marrow Transplant In Kolkata

Want to get a bone marrow transplant but where to do it and how much money will it cost?  Is that South India to run?  Are you worried don't worry anymore, our Tilottama city is Kolkata.  A total of 7 hospitals, both public and private, have cured more than a thousand successful bone marrow transplant patients in the last few years.

Bone marrow transplants can cure various blood diseases including Thalassemia disease or cancer like Aplastic Anemia and leukemia. On Bone Marrow Transplant, Eastern Hematology Group (EHG) organized the first Eastern India Blood, Marrow and Cellular Therapy Meet 2023, A topic that came up on stage is that many people still go to South India for bone marrow transplants, but many still don't know that we have the facility of bone marrow transplant here in Kolkata.

About 150 hematologists from twelve states attended the conference. In addition to hematologists and hemato-oncologists, there were medical oncologists and other doctors involved in transplantation, nurses and support staff, transfusion medicine specialists, and scientists.

Where To Go:  For treatment Bone Marrow Transplant is being done regularly at Kolkata Government Service NRS and Medical. Private sector Apollo, Narayana Super Specialty, Tata Medical Center, Thakurpukur Cancer Hospital, and HCG Echo Cancer Center.

Blood diseases are cured by transplanting healthy stem cells from the patient's body (autologous) or healthy stem cells from a blood relative (allogeneic).  Among these, an 80 to 90% success rate for thalassemia and aplastic anemia and a 60 to 70% success rate for leukemia is at par with the bone marrow transplant success rate in any major hospital in the country.

How Much Does A Bone Marrow Transplant ​​​​​​​Cost?

The doctors themselves said that bone marrow transplant in the government sector is completely free, in the private sector, the cost of autologous transplant is 7 to 10 lakhs, and in the case of allogeneic, the cost is 12 to 14 lakhs. This cost seems to be a lot in one blow.  Similarly, the original disease is cured at the very first stage.
