Neuro-Oncology Clinic

While great successes in pediatric oncology have been achieved, one area that has lagged is in the treatment of brain tumors, which are among the most common type of childhood malignancy. With this great challenge in mind we have formed a comprehensive clinic in pediatric neuro-oncology, led by Dr. Paul Jubinsky. The neuro-oncology clinic at Smilow Cancer Hospital is the only one of its kind in the state of Connecticut and involves a collaboration of pediatric oncologists, neurologists, endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, and social workers to care for this very complex and medically needy group of patients. In addition we are actively participating in national clinical trials for brain tumor patients as well as developing trials for more experimental therapies through brain tumor consortiums.
