Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinical Care

Physician and patient

The team of pediatric hematologists and oncologists at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital collaborates with physicians from across the nation and the globe to treat children who have malignant and non-malignant diseases. Our specialists have earned a national and international reputation for their leading-edge research and comprehensive care.

We offer access to conventional and innovative childhood-cancer therapies, many developed at the University of Minnesota and now standard treatments of care. We also offer more clinical trials than any children’s hospital in the region as well as one of the nation’s most advanced childhood cancer survivorship programs.

The University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital is well-equipped to care for children, adolescents, and young adults who have cancer. For patients who need a blood and marrow transplantation as a part of their care, we integrate seamlessly with our colleagues in Pediatric BMT to ensure a smooth transition to transplant and afterwards to follow-up care. For patients and survivors older than age 25, we partner with our colleagues at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview and the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Cancer Center to ensure the best possible care throughout their lifespan.

For Referring Providers

We welcome the opportunity to discuss patient cases and provide evidence-based advice about treatment choices with referring physicians. During consultations, we discuss the latest treatments, clinical trials and availability. We’re happy to talk to patients and families, and provide expert second opinions that might provide a measure of comfort about the difficult decisions they face. We readily provide multidisciplinary reviews and recommendations for any patient.
