Charles A. Sklar, MD -- Director, Long-Term Follow-Up Program

We've made great strides in the treatment of childhood cancers, with more children surviving than ever before. This is tremendously rewarding to us as physicians. Yet with this success comes a possible risk of long-term side effects related to cancer and its treatment. As Director of Memorial Sloan Kettering's Long-Term Follow-Up Program, I oversee the care of survivors of all types of pediatric cancers, educating them and monitoring their health so we can find and treat related health problems as early as possible.

We always try to emphasize that most survivors have normal healthy lives. But since we can't predict the small percentage who may go on to develop problems, it's important for them to get extra screening tests to monitor their health. At Memorial Sloan Kettering, we're also able to offer survivors of pediatric cancer lifetime follow-up care through our Program for Adult Survivors of Pediatric Cancer.
