Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Program
The Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Program at Smilow Cancer Hospital offers the latest advances in diagnosing and treating childhood cancer and blood disorders, brain tumors, bone tumors, and solid tumors. The Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Program is supported by a multidisciplinary clinical team of physicians and highly skilled advanced practice nurses with expertise in all aspects of care for children with cancer.
The team meets every week to develop individualized treatment plans for each patient and discuss new and current cases. A pediatric oncologist coordinates the multidisciplinary care, which can involve many services, such as pediatric diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology, laboratory medicine, pediatric surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, orthopedics, pediatric pathology and neuropathology.
