If your child requires radiation therapy, he/she will receive focused and sensitive care from the radiation oncology specialists at UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center in Worcester, MA.
We specialize in cancer treatments that allow radiation to be targeted at the tumor with the smallest amount of exposure to normal tissue.
Services provided by pediatric radiation oncology include:
- Treatment of central nervous system neoplasms
- Intra-operative radiation therapy
- Hyperthermia cancer treatment
- Intensity-modulated radiation therapy
These services are provided by caregivers who are quick to respond to the special needs of your child and family. The Child Life Program plays an active role in making everyone comfortable, and pediatric anesthesiologists are available to provide sedation when needed.
