A hopeful future for patients with pediatric brain tumors

Treatment for brain tumors in children has progressed tremendously in the last decade:

  • New tools are being used to help doctors diagnose tumors sooner and with more accuracy
  • Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are increasingly targeting tumors more accurately and effectively while keeping clear of healthy brain cells and tissue.
  • A successful new surgical technique is the intra-operative MRI, which gives surgeons a three-dimensional picture of the tumor, so they can remove the cancer while leaving other parts of the brain relatively untouched.

Clinical trials

For many children with brain tumors or other rare or hard-to-treat conditions, clinical trials provide new options. 

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
