In brief: Yes.

Stem cell transplantation, usually from the patient's own bone marrow (autologous stem cell transplantation) can dure certain types of lymphoma that was not cured by chemotherapy.
Transplantation using another person's cells (allogeneic transplant) is more experimental, but also capable of curing patients where other treatments have failed.
