Pediatric Sarcoma Doctors, Surgeons & Experts

Pediatric Sarcoma Doctors, Surgeons & Experts


Our Pediatric Sarcoma Service provides care to children, adolescents, and young adults. Our pediatric physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other specialists work together to maximize your child’s chance of a cure. Our patients see the same team, made up of experts from different areas, during their entire treatment process. This care is personalized to each child’s and family’s needs.

As active members of the treatment team, nurse practitioners and nurses play an important role in caring for children and young adults. Nurses bring great knowledge and experience to patient care and will help you and your child through your inpatient or outpatient experience at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Our social workers stay in close contact with families to meet any practical and psychosocial needs. Social workers provide counseling, information, and assistance throughout treatment and can direct you toward more help. Our child life specialists, teachers, patient and program coordinators, and session and physician-office assistants also work together to help your child and family in the hospital and at home during treatment periods.
