A full range of treatment options
We offer a full range of treatment options for children with liver tumors. We will create a treatment plan just for your child, as treatment approaches can vary. Our team works closely with each family to determine the best course of action.
Treatment options include:
Surgery: A surgeon removes all or part of the liver.
Liver transplant: A donor provides your child with a healthy liver.
Local ablative techniques: Chemoembolization delivers medicine directly into a vein feeding a tumor, and radiofrequency ablation uses electrical currents to create heat that destroys cancer cells.
Chemotherapy: The use of certain medicines to treat cancer.
Radiation therapy: High-energy rays are used to kill or damage cancer cells.
A child with a liver tumor may undergo any one of these treatments or a combination of them.
Our team is committed to advancing research and medicine by developing new techniques, treatment and cures for children and young adults with solid tumors. We are home to one of the largest clinical trial programs in the country—offering our patients access to some of the most novel treatment options in the country.
