Comprehensive Cancer Care for Pediatric Patients

At Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, we understand that children are not just small adults. Pediatric patients who are facing a cancer diagnosis have unique medical and social-emotional needs, and we are dedicated to providing high-quality care throughout their cancer journey. We combine the latest technology, procedures and research with compassion and a child-focused approach to treat a full range of cancer diagnoses.

Program Overview

The pediatric cancer program at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is led by affiliated cancer specialists who serve as faculty at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. The team can evaluate and treat pediatric malignancies, including liquid tumors, non-neural solid tumors, neurologic tumors, and non-malignant oncological processes. We recognize that cancer treatments are not one size fits all. Our providers work with each patient and family to create an individualized, comprehensive plan of care delivered in a family-friendly environment.
