Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program

Our Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program started more than 15 years ago to improve care and treatment for children with brain and spinal cord tumors.  

This program aims to improve the survival rate for children with these conditions through advanced, research-based care. Our doctors have a high level of expertise and include a variety of subspecialists, including:

  • Pediatric oncology
  • Pediatric neurosurgery
  • Radiation oncology
  • Pediatric neuroradiology
  • Neuropathology

We also work with experts in psychology, social work, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, audiology and rehabilitation services when necessary.

Our experts work together to provide highly specialized treatment plans. We are part of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), an international childhood cancer research organization. This allows us to offer children access to the newest drug trials available. We also offer clinical trials through our membership in the Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutics Investigators’ Consortium (POETIC) and Neuroblastoma and Medulloblastoma Translational Research Consortium (NMTRC).
