Childhood Cancer

Where should your child go for radiation treatment?

For optimal treatment, children should receive radiation therapy only at major medical centers with extensive experience treating children with solid tumors. Doctors who are experienced in pediatric radiation oncology should supervise all treatments. State-of-the-art equipment, expert personnel, and vast experience with many types of childhood tumors are what you should look for when choosing a center. Pediatric anesthesiologists should administer sedation or general anesthesia to young children who require it during radiation.
