Brain Tumors Health Care Team

Brain tumors represent the most common type of solid malignancy in childhood. There are many different types of brain tumors. Currently, more than half of the children diagnosed with a brain tumor will be cured of the disease. However, there has been less dramatic progress in treating brain tumors than most other childhood malignancies. Because of the variety of tumor types and location within the brain, the treatment for brain tumors is particularly complex.

A multidsicilinary team is in place at Children’s Hospital with the experience required to address the multifaceted care of children and adolescents with brain tumors.
