Radiation Oncology

Radiation Oncology at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco provides treatment to shrink or eliminate tumor cells without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. The goal is to use radiation or high-dose X-ray beams to remove the cancer, keep it from spreading or to help improve quality of life by relieving pain and other symptoms.

Our service is world-renowned for offering the highest level of treatment planning and care to patients, while seeking treatment advancements for future patients. Our radiation oncology specialists are committed to the practice of evidence-based medicine, and continually find new and better treatment options that improve patient outcomes in the treatment of cancer.

You'll need a referral from your child's pediatrician or specialist to make an appointment. Once you have the referral, please call the number below.
