Pediatric Cancers

The University of Cincinnati Radiation Oncology Department provides radiotherapy services for all patients at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Pediatric anesthesiologists provide support for the youngest patients, and the full range of technical capabilities--including IMRT and stereotactic radiosurgery--are available for children. Our radiation oncology faculty staff the multidisciplinary pediatric oncology clinics and participate in several pediatric oncology subspecialty conferences. In addition, we are active participants in the Children’s Oncology Group and hold leadership positions within that organization.
