The physicians who staff Cedars-Sinai's Blood and Marrow Transplant Program are committed to better understanding blood-based cancers. Cedars-Sinai's transplantation staff includes oncologists from many different areas of specialized medicine. Working jointly with them is our staff of caring, specially trained oncology and case management nurses. Rounding out the healthcare team are pharmacists, dietitians, psychologists, social workers, data management experts, occupational and physical therapists, and other key healthcare professionals.
The goal of the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program at Cedars-Sinai is to maintain the highest standard of healthcare excellence. With that as a primary guiding principle, the program director demands that doctors who practice in this unit meet strict requirements before being accepted as staff members. These qualifying requirements are set jointly by the Medical Staff Constitution and the program's Executive Committee.
A Multidisciplinary Approach
Members of our team offer expertise in a broad range of specialties, including:
- Medical oncology
- Radiation oncology
- Surgical oncology
- Transfusion medicine
- Symptom and pain management
- Psychosocial services and patient education
- Oncology Nursing
Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.

Advanced Patient Care Team
The advanced patient care team at the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program consists of a select group of certified Nurse Practitioners (NP-C). NPs are registered nurses (RNs) who are prepared, through graduate level education, intensive didactic and clinical training, to provide preventive and acute health-care services to individuals of all ages.
The advanced practitioners are involved in all aspects of clinical care, from outpatient to inpatient. They are available to patients to answer discuss questions and discuss or concerns regarding diagnoses, symptoms, treatment plan, test results, and current research studies.
