Meet the Retinoblastoma Team (Chinese Translation)


At Memorial Sloan Kettering, an experienced team of physicians, nurses, and support staff care for children with the rare eye cancer retinoblastoma and their families.

Led by Chief of the Ophthalmic Oncology Service David H. Abramson, our ophthalmic oncologists, pediatric oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses, social workers, and child life specialists collaborate throughout every step of the treatment journey, from welcoming children and families to the clinic, to providing age-appropriate activities for children in the waiting room, to performing eye exams under anesthesia, to delivering targeted treatments to the eye.

Families like the Yackeys, who come to New York from California, receive care from a team devoted to curing the disease.
