Myelodysplastic Syndromes

There is hope, innovation and support for those diagnosed with a myelodysplastic syndrome

Patient Care and Treatment

The Adult Hematology/Oncology Clinic at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center provides diagnosis and treatment to those whose bone marrow doesn't make enough healthy blood cells. Our clinic follows a team approach to care. Patients have their situation discussed not only by our hematologist oncologists, but also by radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, registered nurses and social workers. By having everyone involved, a personalized treatment plan is developed. In most cases, this discussion happens the same day as the appointment.

Bone Marrow Transplant
For some of our patients, it may be advisable to undergo a bone marrow transplant. In this case, care of the patient is shared with our Bone Marrow Transplant Program. This program is world-renown for its multidisciplinary effort and dedication to our survivorship and chronic GVHD clinic and programs.

Support

Since our program is part of the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, our patients have access to Patient Support Services. To fully understand what this means, please take time to visit the support services area of this website. We outline the services available to our patients at every point in their care.
