  • Psychological testing
  • Radiation and radiosurgery, if needed
  • Sleep studies
  • Social work support
  • Speech and swallow studies

Multidisciplinary Neuro-Oncology Medical Team

Our highly-trained team of pediatric specialists includes a neuro-oncologist, neurosurgeons, hematologists and oncologists from the Valerie Fund Children's Center, neurologists, neurophysiologists, endocrinologists, neuropathologists and neuroradiologists. They are supported by social workers, psychologists, nurses, anesthesiologists, critical care intensivists, physical therapists, child life specialists and a physiatrist, who all work together to create a child-friendly hospital environment. We also believe in communicating regularly with the child’s primary care pediatrician to ensure long-term, coordinated follow up care and treatment.
