Who We Are

Our Pediatric Solid Tumor Program provides specialized evaluation, diagnosis and care for children, teens and young adults with solid tumors, including neuroblastoma, hepatoblastoma, bone and soft tissue sarcomas, Wilms' tumors and other cancers. We also care for patients whose cancers have relapsed. Our team is known globally for taking on rare and challenging cases.

At UCSF, we believe cancer therapy works best when it is tailored to each patient's disease. Every one of our patients is unique, and our program offers high-quality, targeted care that is precise, effective and compassionate. We evaluate patients using the most advanced diagnostic tools, including genetic tests developed here at UCSF and not offered at other hospitals. Our patients also have access to new treatments that aren't widely available or that are still being evaluated in clinical trials. We're the only hospital in Northern California that's a member of the Oncology Group Phase 1/Pilot Consortium, a small group of leading institutions tasked by the National Cancer Institute with developing new therapies for pediatric cancers.

Our team understands that cancer treatment is an intensely personal experience for each child and family. That's why we draw on the expertise of nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers and child life specialists to ensure that you and your child receive the support you need. It's also why we strive to make as much of your child's care as possible happen close to home — through telehealth and collaboration with health care providers in your community.
