About Our Program

Yassar Khaled

The Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program, a collaboration between West Cancer Center, Methodist Healthcare, and the University of Tennessee, utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach for the care of transplant recipients throughout the transplant continuum. BMT physicians and staff collaborate with patients and their families to provide high quality, cost-effective, patient- and family-centered care. The BMT program strives to continually improve hematopoietic progenitor cell (HPC) transplantation care by education and professional growth of team members and by participation in clinical trials.
