Children's Hospital Los Angeles has performed more than 1,300 bone marrow transplants since 1983, completing 45 to 55 procedures annually. Our HSCT Program is one of the largest, most highly regarded pediatric programs in the world and responsible for 50 percent of all pediatric bone marrow transplants in Los Angeles County.
