A bone marrow transplant is a procedure that infuses healthy blood-forming stem cells into your body to replace your damaged or diseased bone marrow. Bone marrow transplants may use cells from your own body (autologous transplant) or from a donor (allogeneic transplant). Bone marrow transplants can benefit people with a variety of both cancerous (malignant) and noncancerous (benign) diseases.

On this episode of Mayo Clinic Q&A, Dr. William Hogan, director of the Mayo Clinic Bone Marrow Transplant program, discusses bone marrow transplant.
