Our innovative and collaborative approach to treating children living with brain tumors, spinal tumors or other neuro-oncological conditions is a hallmark of our nurturing care. Your child benefits from weekly case reviews by our multidisciplinary pediatric neuro-oncology board, featuring specialists in a variety of relevant fields, from neuro-oncologists to neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists to social workers and neuropsychologists.
When it’s time for treatment, we offer expertise in conventional therapies as well as new innovative therapies—including novel approaches to chemotherapy, molecularly-targeted drug treatments, stereotactic surgeries (a minimally invasive option for locating small targets in the body), and new strategies in radiotherapy. In addition to life-changing treatment, our experts provide nurturing support that continues long after your child leaves the hospital, coordinating with our network physicians, rehabilitation and home care services, neuropsychology and school specialists as needed to ease recovery and empower your family as your child returns to the joys of a healthy childhood.
Our mission is to discover the cause and cures for childhood brain tumors, enhance the neurological and cognitive outcomes of children with cancer or blood diseases, and to deliver superior outcomes through the trans-disciplinary care we provide.
