What Sets Us Apart

At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone, a team of specialists collaborates to provide your child with the best care for neuroblastoma. This rare cancer occurs in the sympathetic nervous system, a part of the nervous system that helps control the body’s response to stress. The sympathetic nervous system includes organs and structures such as the intestines, smooth muscle, heart, and glands.

Neuroblastoma mainly affects children under age five, but may occur at any age during childhood or adolescence. Our oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, nurses, psychologists, rehabilitation specialists, and wellness experts provide support to your child and your family throughout treatment.

Treatment at NYU Langone

At Hassenfeld Children's Hospital, treatment for neuroblastoma depends on whether the cancer has spread beyond the tumor’s original location. In some cases, only surgery is needed. In others, your child may also need chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or stem cell transplantation.
