Solid Tumor Program

Pediatric Solid Tumors

The Pediatric Solid Tumor Program at Children’s Hospital New Orleans provides comprehensive care for children and young adults who have been diagnosed with bone or soft tissue cancers. Some of the cancers we treat include neuroblastoma, osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, hepatoblastoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, Wilms tumor, germ cell tumor, and many others. Patients with solid tumors often require a combination of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery for treatment. Our team of LSU Health and Tulane University pediatric oncologists and advanced practice providers works closely with Children's Hospital pediatric surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and a robust group of supportive care services to treat our patients in a collaborative, multidisciplinary setting. Supportive care services include rehabilitation services, psychology, psychiatry, child life specialists, and social workers.

Through our membership in the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), we can offer patients from infancy to adolescence and young adulthood the most up-to-date clinical trials in our field as we continually strive to improve long-term outcomes for these patients. Such participation in clinical research efforts allows us to provide patients and families with access to both expert, state-of-the-art care as well as clinical trial options.
