If you are in a position where you are looking for the best and safest bone marrow transplant centers, it is likely that you and your family are under a lot of stress. In some cases time is of the essence; the sooner a bone marrow or stem cell transplant can be conducted, the better the outcome is likely to be.
At Bone Marrow Transplant Mexico we understand that it can be very hard to find the best place for life-saving treatment. We also know that there are certain facilities that are not offered in some hospitals and clinics; facilities that could save your life. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should consider Bone Marrow Transplant Mexico for your bone marrow transplant procedure:
- Continuity of Care. Research shows that continuity of care has an impact on patient recovery. Of course, it is not possible for a physician to be on call 24/7, but throughout a patient’s bone marrow transplant experience, the patient will be treated primarily by Dr. Ovilla, with support from his colleagues Dr. Raquel Miranda and Dr. Nicolas Guzmán, to help provide highest levels of care for each and every patient.
- On Site Facilities. Bone marrow transplant or stem cell transplantation is a complex procedure, which leaves the patient vulnerable to infections. It is crucial that your bone marrow transplant center has the facilities to deal with any expected or unexpected complications quickly and effectively. Our on-site laboratories, blood bank and full staffing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week help us to expediently detect, manage and reduce the risk of infections and complications much more quickly than centers that do not possess their own laboratories and blood banks.
- Patient-Lead Aftercare. Many transplant centers have a set package that includes a defined stay in a hospital following the transplant, usually of a few weeks, when blood counts start to rise. At Bone Marrow Transplant Mexico we have the facilities and capacity to keep patients in their private, secure hospital suite as long as we, and they, feel necessary in order to control the risk of infection and optimize recovery. Only when Dr. Ovilla and the patient are confident will the patient be given the option to move to specialized supported accommodation, either on or off site according to the patient’s needs. Patients typically stay in the hospital or in the accommodation provided for a period of 3-6 months. In the later stages of their stay patients are able to go out and enjoy the surrounding area providing they follow the infection control guidelines given to them by their healthcare team. This extended support and observation dramatically reduces the risks of post-procedural complications, such as infection and Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD).
Since the specialist Bone Marrow Transplant Unit was established in 2000, Dr. Ovilla has treated around 60 adults and children with blood disorders and blood cancers. Dr. Ovilla and his team have conducted allogeneic stem cell transplants and autologous transplants using peripheral blood stem cells and bone marrow cells, as well as umbilical cord stem cell transplants using donated stem cells. Bone Marrow Transplant Mexico has treated people with a range of life-threatening diseases, including AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia), Lymphoma, ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia), Myelodysplastic syndrome, aplastic anemia, sickle cell anemia and testicular cancer.
Mexican Nationals and medical tourists come to Bone Marrow Transplant Mexico for their stem cell or bone marrow transplants because of the facilities, expertise and accreditations, which give our patients the confidence that they are in the safest hands.
