Oncology Clinic

The Pediatric Oncology Clinic team of world-renowned childhood cancer experts includes doctors, nurses and social workers, who care for patients with every type of childhood cancer. We understand that undergoing cancer treatment is emotionally difficult, and we offer not just a helping hand, but a hand to hold.

In addition to treating patients, our doctors lead world-class research aimed at advancing the understanding and treatment of cancer. Thanks to that work, patients have the opportunity to participate in large-scale clinical trials of new therapies and drugs. Our goal is to help kids get better as quickly as possible so they can put cancer behind them and get on with their lives.
