Neuroblastoma Doctors, Surgeons & Experts

MSK pediatric nurse and patient

Our pediatric nurses are critical to providing your child with innovative and compassionate care.

Our neuroblastoma experts — including five board-certified oncologists and five nurse practitioners singularly focused on treating neuroblastoma — work as a team to give your child the best possible outcome and quality of care possible. Our experts are among the best in the world, and we’ll do everything in our power to help your child beat this disease.

As our patient, your child will see the same team of healthcare professionals during his or her entire neuroblastoma treatment process. This integrated care is personalized to your child’s needs.

You’ll also have a lot of interaction with our pediatric nurses. Each of them brings great knowledge, experience, and expertise to your child’s care, and we hope you feel comfortable asking them questions and seeking their guidance. They’re experts in neuroblastoma and can help in a variety of ways.

If your child is receiving antibody therapy for neuroblastoma you’ll likely have a lot of contact with our two full-time research nurses dedicated to this form of treatment.
