Brain cancer — the second most common of all childhood cancers– robs children of bright futures, even when their lives are saved. Childhood development and future health often are compromised by harsh radiation and chemotherapy. Thanks to our new affiliation with the Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, WBTP can undertake pediatric brain tumor research projects, and possibly spare children from living with side effects for a lifetime.
Joining the WBTP team are three expert Maria Fareri pediatric neurosurgeons: Raj Murali, M.D., Avinash L. Mohan, M.D., and Michael E. Tobias, M.D. Our new affiliation will add an extra dimension to the world-class pediatric cancer care at Maria Fareri, and ultimately will give Hudson Valley patients and parents a chance to participate in clinical trials in their own backyard.
