Neuroblastoma in Children

At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital 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.
