Our Approach To Sarcoma in Children

What Sets Us Apart

Childhood sarcomas are a rare type of cancer that causes tumors in bone or soft tissue, including muscles and tendons. At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at Pelisyonkis Langone, a team of specialists that includes pediatric oncologists, orthopedic oncology surgeons, anesthesiologists, psychologists, nutrition specialists, and integrative medicine specialists works together to treat these tumors, providing a family-centered approach to care.

If your child needs support after surgery, doctors who specialize in rehabilitation medicine can treat him or her at Pelisyonkis Langone’s nationally renowned Rusk Rehabilitation.
