Families of children with brain and spinal cord tumors face great challenges, but finding comprehensive, compassionate care shouldn't be one of them. Our brain and spinal cord tumor program provides families with many choices of diagnostic, treatment, rehabilitation and support services so that each child has the best chance for a cure, as well as the best possible quality of life.

A Multidisciplinary Team

Pediatric experts from a wide range of specialties can be part of your child's team, including oncology, neurosurgery, endocrinology, ophthalmology, genetics, therapy and more. Expert physicians meet weekly to discuss cases, share viewpoints and weigh the pros and cons of different brain tumor management plans. Every brain tumor case is discussed in this Tumor Board meeting before treatment is determined.
