A Regional Leader Offering Comprehensive Care
Our pediatric surgeons work closely with specialists in hematology, oncology and radiology, as well as bone marrow transplant services to offer comprehensive care. We have one of the largest pediatric cancer programs in the southeastern United States, and are active participants in the national Children’s Oncology Group.
Why Choose Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital?
Surgery often plays a critical role in a child’s cancer treatment. Here, your child will benefit from true multidisciplinary surgical care. Our pediatric surgeons collaborate with pediatric oncologists and other specialists to evaluate your child’s unique needs and develop a cohesive, comprehensive and thoughtful approach to their care.
For example, most pediatric cancer patients will require a special central venous access procedure to facilitate chemotherapy and blood sampling. This allows your child to be as comfortable as possible while receiving long-term intravenous care by avoiding the need for frequent “needle pricks.” Our pediatric surgeons do this procedure every day – our experience and depth of expertise has real benefits for your child.
