We have more than 20 physicians who are highly skilled and experienced in treating children and young adults with all forms of cancer—from the most common to those rarely seen outside of the top pediatric centers. Our cancer programs include:
Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors—We have one of the largest pediatric brain tumor programs in the country, following more than 700 children and young adults with brain tumors each year.
Our program features advanced imaging and neurosurgery capabilities, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); software and techniques; an intra-operative MRI (iMRI) system; positron emission tomography; (PET) scanning; Gamma Knife technology; and stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy
Leukemia and Lymphoma—Our program offers a large team of providers with specialized expertise in treating all forms of leukemia and lymphoma, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).
Each year, our program cares for approximately 125 newly diagnosed patients using a variety of treatment protocols, including BMT and Phase I and Phase II trials for patients whose cancer has relapsed or is not responding to treatment.
Solid Tumor—Our program consists of medical and research professionals dedicated to treating solid tumors and developing new treatments and cures for the future. We care for approximately 125 newly diagnosed patients with these forms of cancer each year.
Additionally, our solid tumor program is one of the only programs in the Southeast offering therapeutic MIBG to patients with neuroblastoma.
