Our Experience Since 1973
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the largest centers for stem cell and bone marrow transplants in the country. In 1973, our doctors did the world’s first successful transplant between a patient and an unrelated donor.
Since then, MSK has been a leader in stem cell transplantation. We developed many of the transplant methods widely used today. MSK has done more than 10,000 transplants.
In 2022, we were recognized for performing above expectations set by The Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) for the 10th year in a row. The CIBMTR evaluated one-year survival rates for transplants from related and unrelated donors among transplant centers in the United States. Our patients’ one-year survival rate was higher than expected compared to the survival rate of similar patients receiving transplants in the US.
