Patients at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's have access to the broadest set of pediatric, hematologic, and oncologic expertise available. The breadth of our expertise allows us to assemble a team of specialists to meet the specific needs of each patient.
At the core of the treatment team is a pediatric hematologist/oncologist who specializes in treating leukemia. Many of our leukemia specialists are also active researchers, and our patients have access to the very best and up-to-date treatments available.
We build a team that is best suited to carry out the patient's treatment plan, including hematopathologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, stem cell transplantation specialists, and pediatric oncology nurses, all with specific expertise in treating childhood leukemia. Our team also includes experts from every pediatric medical specialty, including cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology, and infectious diseases, among others.
We round out the team with experts who help your child prepare for life during and after treatment, including psychiatrists and psychologists, child life specialists, social workers, nutritionists, and school specialists.
