Norton Children’s Cancer Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, provides top-notch cancer care to families in Kentucky, Southern Indiana and beyond. We have the skills and equipment to precisely diagnose and treat neuroblastoma, the most common solid tumor found in children. The average age of diagnosis is about 18 months, but the tumor occasionally is seen in teenagers or young adults. About 800 new cases of neuroblastoma are diagnosed each year in the U.S.
Highly trained specialists at Norton Children’s Cancer Institute collaborate to provide a treatment plan for kids with neuroblastoma. With a deep commitment to innovation and constant learning, this means you can count on our team to provide advanced treatment options.
Norton Children’s Cancer Institute was formed through a collaboration of Norton Cancer Institute, the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Norton Children’s Hospital and UofL School of Medicine. Norton Children’s Cancer Institute offers the latest advancements in pediatric cancer care and programs, serving as a beacon of hope for families not just in Greater Louisville but nationwide.
Board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians at Norton Children’s Cancer Institute offer sophisticated treatment for neuroblastoma. We have the ability to pinpoint the tumor while working to avoid damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Neuroblastoma treatment may include surgery to remove the tumor, chemotherapy and, in some cases, radiation therapy or stem cell transplants.
We are committed to participating in promising clinical trials and new therapies in their earliest stages, as well as developing groundbreaking research and cutting-edge technology.
Norton Children’s Cancer Institute is a long-standing member of the Children’s Oncology Group. The Children’s Oncology Group is the largest group of hospitals around the world that treat children with cancer. Our involvement means your child will have access to innovative new treatments through clinical trials. Access to these treatments can improve childhood cancer outcomes while decreasing long-term effects. Talk with your Norton Children’s Cancer Institute providers about clinical trials that may be available.
