Pediatric Radiation Therapy
If your child requires radiation therapy, radiation oncology specialists at UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center provide the sensitive care that is needed.
Our caregivers are quick to respond to the special needs of your child and family. The Child Life Program plays an active role in making everyone comfortable, and pediatric anesthesiologists are available to provide sedation when needed.
We specialize in cancer treatments that allow radiation to be targeted at the tumor with the smallest amount of exposure to normal tissue.
