Pediatric Cancer

If your child need cancer care, put your trust in experienced doctors at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Our team of pediatric oncologists, in partnership with Children’s Health – located on the same Dallas campus – treat all pediatric cancers, even the rarest malignancies.

We offer a full array of the latest diagnostic capabilities and therapies available as well as programs that provide comprehensive care for the entire family.

With a large number of pediatric hematologists and oncologists on staff, we are able to care for more than 1,000 new pediatric cancer patients each year. This makes our program the largest childhood cancer and blood disorders treatment center in the region.

Our brain tumor and blood cancer programs are among our most active programs. Because we have a large program that treats a lot of children, we offer a level of expertise and experience that’s unmatched in the area. Our treatment results equal or exceed those at the most prestigious pediatric cancer centers in the country. 

Program Highlights

Through our relationship with the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), a National Cancer Institute supported clinical trials group, we have access to the latest treatments, information, and support from all over the world. In pediatrics, it’s common for children with cancer to enroll in cooperative group studies such as those sponsored by the COG so that information can be shared across the group. One institution alone does not usually have the numbers to do a single institution trial, so our involvement with this group is a huge benefit to our patients. We are one of only 20 institutions within the COG approved for experimental new drug trials.

Our Cancer Susceptibility Program at Children’s Health is unique in North Texas. This innovative program provides families of children who have an increased likelihood of developing cancer due to genetics with access to the most advanced genetic counseling, ongoing screening, and oncology specialists. We identify children who are more likely to develop some forms of cancer and watch over them to detect, and, if necessary, treat their cancer as early as possible.
