Committed to Clinical Excellence
Every patient is assessed on an individual basis, which enables our team to develop a customized treatment plan for your child, which may include a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation.
All cases, either newly diagnosed or during treatment, are reviewed during multidisciplinary tumor boards, where experts from varying specialties review and discuss your child’s pathology, imaging and response to therapy. These discussions allow for better patient care and coordination with other subspecialists involved in your child’s treatment.
As an affiliate of the Children's Oncology Group and a member of the Florida Pediatric Community Clinical Oncology Program, we participate in clinical trials and research studies so our patients have access to advanced treatment options in Broward County. See our pediatric cancer clinical trials.
