Stem Cell Transplant

Stem Cell Transplant and Myeloma Program was first established in 1990 at the University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics.

In 1994, the pediatric program of the SCT program began at Primary Children's Medical Center and in 1997 these programs along with the LDS Hospital evolved into the Utah Stem Cell Transplant and Myeloma Program.

The program, under the Division of Hematology and medical direction of Dr. Guido Tricot, provides consultation, treatment and care to children and adults with various diseases where blood and marrow transplantation may be a beneficial or curative treatment option.
    
The Utah SCT program is the only comprehensive center that serves the Intermountain West region covering areas in Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, western Colorado and eastern Nevada. Together, the Utah BMT program has performed over 1600 transplants at the 3 separate facilities. The Utah SCT programs uses a multi-disciplinary team approach in providing comprehensive medical care to patients and families in order to optimize outcomes and patient satisfaction. The team consists of dedicated SCT attending physicians, fellows, physician extenders (nurse practitioners and physician assistants) and clinical coordinators.

The Utah SCT program is involved in numerous investigative research protocols and works cooperatively with the Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) and the Children's Oncology Group (COG). It is a fully accredited participating transplant center with the National Marrow Donor Program (NDMP) and is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
