We treat a child’s cancer or blood disorder while providing emotional support for the whole family.
The Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital is one of the nation's leading facilities for treating children with cancers and blood disorders. Our doctors are experts in all types of childhood cancers, including leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, brain and spinal cord tumors, neurofibromatosis, and bone and soft tissue sarcomas. We also specialize in platelet, white blood cell, and blood-clotting disorders.
Although our goal is focused on providing the best medical care possible, we understand that your child needs more than just a treatment plan. We care for the whole family and extend our goals beyond merely conquering disease. We work to eradicate the physical, emotional, and psychological burden of a disease while looking toward the future.
We do this by hosting holiday celebrations and providing homework assistance because we know that making children’s lives as normal as possible has a lasting and positive effect. We also host support groups and provide integrative health programs to address the emotional and psychological impacts of cancer treatment.
Your child’s healthcare team includes the primary doctor whom he or she sees regularly, as well as a coordinated team of nurse practitioners, nurses who specialize in hematology and oncology, social workers, child life specialists, psychologists, educators, nutritionists, and physical therapists.
In addition, we offer guided imagery, yoga, pet and horticulture therapy, massage, and Reiki for both children and parents.
At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, your child receives the most advanced care appropriate for his or her condition in an environment that addresses medical needs as well as the social and emotional needs of your whole family.
