The Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is home to one of the largest pediatric blood and marrow transplant (BMT) programs in the country, performing more than 72 lifesaving BMTs in 2021.
The BMT Survivor Clinic, which opened in April 2021, provides specialized care for patients after a BMT, helping them to identify challenges, symptoms or complications that may require treatment. Because complications can occur at any time after a BMT, early detection and intervention are essential to preventing long-term issues. The clinic’s multidisciplinary team of experts includes physicians from our BMT, cancer survivor, endocrinology, psychology, and gynecology programs, all of whom come together to create care plans dedicated to addressing each patient’s individual needs.
Our Comprehensive Programs
Our BMT Survivor Clinic welcomes all children and teens once they are a year or more out from their BMT—whether their BMT took place at Children's or at a different healthcare system. During each clinic visit, the patient will be seen by relevant members of our multidisciplinary team and may receive lab work and other testing. Our experts will work closely to provide the survivor with comprehensive, collaborative care. At the end of each visit, the survivor will be given an individualized care plan to manage his or her condition and any symptoms or complications that arise.
If your child or teen has been diagnosed with a cancer or blood disorder, we understand how overwhelming it can be for you and your family. At the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center we make it our mission to provide the best care and best experience for every child who has to undergo a BMT. As a parent, we want to help you make informed decisions regarding your child and their health. That’s why we have made so many BMT resources available to you and your family during this journey.
