One in five children who have been diagnosed with cancer have a neurological cancer, one that affects his or her central nervous system. These types of cancers require a sensitive, yet precise touch. That’s why your child needs the expert team of pediatric oncologists at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC.
Our talented team of physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, child life specialists and teachers is here to help you and your family battle neurological cancers such as brain tumors, sarcomas and neuroblastomas. If your child is diagnosed with neurological cancer, members of our pediatric neuro-oncology tumor board will evaluate his or her case.
The board is composed of board-certified pediatric oncologists, medical oncologists, pediatric neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, neuroradiologists and radiation oncologists. They will determine the best treatment plan for your child, while keeping in mind the best quality of life during treatments and after.
From radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery, Levine Children’s Hospital’s experts are experienced in all treatment options. We use leading-edge technology to provide your child with advanced therapies and treatments. Thanks to the help of the Children’s Oncology Group, we can also refer your child to #link# clinical trials, so he or she can benefit from emerging treatment therapies.
Battling cancer is not just an in-hospital fight. Our pediatric neuro-oncologists know that once treatment has ended, careful monitoring is still an important part of the battle. Our survivorship clinic enables us to monitor the potential late-effects of treatment so we can address any concerns, administer treatment earlier, and provide education and guidance on survivorship.
