Methodist Hospital is proud to announce that Paul Shaughnessy, M.D., has been appointed as Medical Director of the Adult and Pediatric Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Program at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, TX.

The Adult Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Program is one of the most preferred programs in the United States and consistently ranks among the nation’s top transplant centers in one-year patient survival rates. 

Additionally, the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Program is one of the busiest programs in the nation – performing 40 to 50 pediatric blood and marrow stem cell transplants every year.

A physician who closely follows his transplant patients through their journey with cancer, Dr. Shaughnessy leads both adult and pediatric programs that engage in clinical trials to explore the latest therapies for a wide range of diseases.

 “Bone marrow transplant allows that great interaction between caring for patients and solving complex clinical problems to improve outcomes in patients with hematological malignancies and those experiencing complications of bone marrow transplant,” said Dr. Shaughnessy.

Dr. Shaughnessy received a medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and is board certified in internal medicine, hematology and oncology. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas.
