Fairfax Stem Cell Program

Thousands of cancer patients undergo stem cell transplants each year, giving them renewed hope for a longer life. 

The Stem Cell Transplant Program at Fairfax offers adult transplant services through a unique partnership between Virginia Cancer Specialists and Inova Fairfax Hospital. The types of transplants the Program offers includes: 

  • Autologous Transplant – A method by which to safely deliver high-dose chemotherapy. Your own stem cells are harvested prior to chemotherapy and then re-infused after chemotherapy is completed.
  • Allogeneic Transplant – A method by which high-dose chemotherapy is delivered followed by re-infusion of stem cells from a donor other than yourself.
    • Related Donor
    • Matched Unrelated Donor (MUD)
  • Non-myelobalative/Reduced Intensity Chemotherapy (RIC) – A type of allogeneic transplant which uses a modified or reduced dose of chemotherapy.
