St. Jude surgeons have years of experience in performing complex and rare pediatric cancer surgeries. These include procedures to promote long-term survival and quality of life. Our goal is for your child to be cancer-free and able to live a healthy, active life.
What We Do
Our pediatric surgeons and other specialists work with you and your child’s doctor here and/or at home to develop an individual treatment plan for your child. We accept some of the toughest cases, including tumors other pediatric surgeons may consider inoperable.
Can my child come to St. Jude for surgery?
Some children come to St. Jude just for surgery. In many cases, they have already received initial chemotherapy from their home doctors. After recovery from surgery, these patients return home to complete therapy.
