CHILDHOOD CANCER

The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology program at The University of Kansas Cancer Center has outstanding specialists, exceptional nurses and highly personal care.

The program treats approximately 35 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 Hospital includes outstanding oncologic orthopedic surgeons with impressive 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.
