The progressive improvement in our country's health system has meant that more and more centers are performing conventional hematopoietic stem cell transplants. That is why our program, in compliance with the usual line of advance of our institution, has directed its efforts towards highly complex transplant programs. Furthermore, in addition to conventional transplants for all types of diseases, we are also developing other lines of care.

Lines of care


· Autoimmune diseases. Multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease and lupus erythematosus. We are the only center in Spain taking part in international studies for the treatment of these diseases.

· Plasma cell dyscrasias. Our center is the most experienced center in the country regarding the treatment of light chain diseases or scleromyxedema.


It represents more than half of all allogeneic transplants and the center is responsible for the highest number of these procedures per year in Spain. More and more patients are being treated by umbilical cord transplant due to not being able to locate a compatible volunteer donor.


Lines of transplant care have been developed for patients with diseases that are not curable by any other means, such as idiopathic myelofibrosis, multiple myeloma, aggressive lymphomas, chronic lymphocytic leukemia or paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.

The medical team is 100% dedicated to HSCT. As a result, our patients are always seen by the same team of physicians throughout the entire procedure.

Specially trained hospital nurses have extensive experience in the care of these patients with a nurse-to-patient ratio that is never more than 1:2.
