Caregiver

Your child’s care will be customized by a team of experts, including medical, surgical and radiation oncologists and specialized pathologists. A specially trained and focused support staff includes nurses, physician assistants, therapists and many others. They all collaborate and communicate frequently about your child’s case. This translates into comprehensive, focused care for children and teens with liver cancer.

Experience, innovation

Our physicians have at their fingertips the most modern techniques and technology to diagnose and treat pediatric liver cancer. And they use them with extraordinary skill.

Surgery for liver cancer often is complex and challenging. Your best chance for a successful outcome is with a surgeon who has a deep level of experience and skill in these highly specialized procedures.

Our pediatric surgeons use the latest methods to perform a large number of delicate liver cancer surgeries each year, with higher chance for successful treatment than many other cancer centers.

Children’s Cancer Hospital offers clinical trials for innovative new treatments for pediatric liver cancer. Behind the scenes, we are working on groundbreaking basic science research to change the future of pediatric cancer.
