Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, along with our experts in pediatric neurosurgery, provide comprehensive and coordinated care for children with noncancerous or cancerous brain and spinal cord tumors. From diagnosis and treatment through short- and long-term follow-up care, our team of pediatric neuro-oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, neuropsychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and social workers ensures that your child’s needs are addressed.
