Bone Marrow Failure Disorders Program

U.S. News & World Report - CancerBone marrow failure syndromes are rare diseases characterized by an inability to make enough blood affecting the production of either red cells, which carry oxygen; white cells, which fight infection; or platelets, which help the blood clot and stop bleeding. Bone marrow failure disorders may be either inherited or acquired, and understanding their cause can help guide important treatments.

The Bone Marrow Failure Disorders Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford brings together a coordinated, comprehensive team dedicated to providing patients with rapid, precise diagnoses and the best available treatments for these complex, rare conditions. Our program combines deep expertise in hematology, genetics and stem cell transplantation to deliver exceptional care and patient support.
