Narayana Health has a State-of-the-Art Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) unit. The BMT unit has carried out more than 400 bone marrow transplants till date, which is the largest number in Karnataka and one of the largest in the country. This unit has emerged as a referral centre for national and international patients for both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants. Patients have been referred from Oman, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Srilanka, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Nepal, Burma, Kenya and Pakistan for stem cell transplant procedures. A cord blood banking facility has been recently established in collaboration with Rotary International, which functions both as a public and private cord blood facility. With a large number of cord blood units being available in our country, cord blood transplants can be offered to a large number of patients who do not have HLA matched sibling donors.
