Brain Tumor Treatment

Our Pediatric Brain Tumor program is currently one of the largest in the country and we are committed not only to pursuing cures, but also to preserving the quality of your child's life. Children are not just small people. Their anatomy and physiology, and the disorders that affect them, are very unique. They require a specialized team to provide the optimal care, which is what you get from our brain tumor team at St. Jude.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the only hospitals in the country solely dedicated to finding cures for pediatric patients with catastrophic illnesses -- therefore, you will find a hospital and staff that has only one focus -- your child.

The experienced healthcare specialists in our multidisciplinary team includes neuro-oncologists, neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists who have dedicated their careers to finding cures and providing treatment for children with brain tumors. Our brain tumor physicians also work closely with support staff in rehabilitation medicine, nursing, neuropathology, pharmacy, neuro-radiology, psychology, clinical nutrition, child life and social work. These support personnel have been specifically trained in caring for pediatric brain tumor patients and assisting in meeting their special needs.
