Best Children's HospitalsOur program is nationally recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best pediatric cancer programs.

The neuro oncology team, led by Dr. Ziad Khatib, provides state-of-the-art treatment for all newly diagnosed and recurrent brain tumors. Novel treatments include chemotherapy for young children to avoid or delay radiation's side effects, stem cell transplantation with high dose chemotherapy and antiangiogenesis therapy to cut the blood supply to growing tumors.
 

We are offering personalized molecular genomic testing of tumors and are involved with novel tumor vaccine trials.
