The Upper Midwest’s First Bone Marrow Transplant Program
Blood and bone marrow transplants are a common treatment for patients with blood cancer. Patients may need a transplant if they have certain blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma or other diseases.
We’re proud to bring this treatment option to our patients in North Dakota. The Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center is the first and only location in the state to offer a bone marrow transplant program.
Partner with our team of specialists in Fargo, North Dakota, to get compassionate care, close to home.

Types of Bone Marrow Transplants
Bone marrow transplants help patients whose stem cells have been damaged by disease or high doses of chemotherapy. The treatment replaces damaged or unhealthy cells with healthy ones.
There are two types of bone marrow transplants:
- Autologous transplants. Healthy cells are taken from the patient’s own bone marrow for transplant after chemotherapy.
- Allogeneic transplants. Healthy cells are taken from a donor’s bone marrow for a transplant.
CAR T-cell therapy is a type of cellular therapy. For this treatment, patients receive T-cells (white blood cells) that have been genetically modified to identify and destroy cancer cells.
The Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center currently offers autologous transplants. Allogeneic transplants will be offered in late 2022, and CAR T-cell therapy will be available in 2023.
