As a result of the recent Executive Order from the office of the Governor of the State of Florida and out of an abundance of caution and concern for our patients during the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed the scheduling of elective surgeries and procedures until further notice. This helps us minimize the chance of infection for our patients and staff, conserves the use of personal protective equipment and maintains resources for those who might become critically ill in the future. We will resume scheduling elective surgeries and other procedures once the situation improves. Please reach out to your primary health care provider if you have any questions or concerns.
The Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Leukemia Service, in collaboration with the UF Health Cancer Center, uses a multidisciplinary patient care approach that optimizes patient outcomes and satisfaction.
The Pediatric BMT program has successfully performed stem cell transplantation to treat a broad variety of malignant and benign hematologic disorders, including but not limited to:
- Acute leukemia, chronic leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes
- Severe aplastic anemia
- Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes, including Fanconi anemia
- Hemoglobinopathies, including thalassemia and sickle cell disease
- Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (LCH)

Our program has also recently implemented haploidentical transplantation (from a parent or sibling) as a stem cell source for patients with leukemia and other malignant disorders who lack suitable matched donors.
