Font : A-A+

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctors do bone marrow transplantation?

Bone marrow transplantation is performed by physicians including oncologists specialized in doing the transplantation.

2. Should I ask my doctor to preserve my baby’s umbilical cord once she is born?

Preserving the umbilical cord after the baby is born is definitely a good option.

However, the high cost for storage in private cord banks could definitely be a deterrent. The umbilical cord could also be stored in public banks; however, public banks do not assure the same stem cells will be provided to the person or family when required.
