Shakeel Modak, MD

I am a pediatric oncologist who specializes in the treatment of children and young adults with neuroblastoma and other solid tumors, such as desmoplastic small round cell tumors. These are challenging cancers to treat. By caring for patients and conducting research, I hope to be able make an impact and improve the lives of people diagnosed with these diseases.

Our multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals discusses each patient's case in order to put together an individualized treatment plan. Memorial Sloan Kettering treats a large number of patients with neuroblastoma, and this volume has afforded us a wealth of knowledge and depth of expertise that benefit all patients. I am also inspired by the parents of my patients, who work tirelessly to support each other and to raise funds for research. They are vital members of our team.
