The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology program at The University of Kansas Cancer Center has outstanding specialists, exceptional nurses and highly personal care.
Dr. Ronny Rotondo, director of proton therapy, specializes in the management of pediatric malignancies, adult brain tumors, base of skull and spine tumors, and soft tissue and bone sarcomas.
The program treats children, adolescents and young adults each year who have a wide range of cancers. One particular area of emphasis is treating sarcoma, a cancer of connective tissue and bones.
That's because The University of Kansas Health System includes outstanding oncologic orthopedic surgeons with renowned sarcoma expertise, said Thomas Loew, MD, pediatric hematologist/oncologist, one of the two physicians fully dedicated to the program. By adding Loew's sarcoma experience and that of his associate, pediatric hematologist/oncologist Jyoti Panicker, MD, the program is taking a "centers of excellence" approach in this area.
