Along with our doctors, specialized nurses experienced in the care of children, teens, and young adults with cancer and blood disorders play a vital role in the care of hospitalized children at MedStar Health.
Our team is strengthened by comprehensive pediatric-centered services including Child Life, Clinical Technicians, Speech/Physical/ Occupation Therapy, Social Work, Pastoral Care, and Pediatric Nutrition. Palliative care and pain services are also available and aimed at alleviating patient suffering and providing comfort to acutely sick and terminally ill patients.
Need a second opinion? Getting a second opinion means asking our cancer specialists, aside from your initial physician, to review your medical reports and test results and then provide a diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The specialist may confirm your initial diagnosis and treatment recommendations, provide additional treatment options, or even give more details about your type and stage of cancer. Even if you’ve already had treatment, it’s not too late to get a second opinion. To get a second opinion contact our cancer specialists by calling us at 877-715-HOPE.
