The Section of Paediatric Oncology (Childhood cancers) in the Department of Oncology focuses on the effective diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from childhood cancers. AKUH's multidisciplinary paediatric oncology programme is designed to streamline care and improve patient experience for our young patients and their families during a tough journey.
Our team of paediatric oncologists specialize in providing cutting-edge treatments supported by the latest research to ensure our patients are provided quality care tailored to their health needs.
Our team of highly trained specialists provide a range of services including clinical trials and internationally recognized research efforts that ensure patients have access to the latest advances in treatment, as well as multiple support programmes that help patients and their families navigate the challenges associated with childhood cancer or hematological disease diagnosis.
Common childhood cancers include neuroblastoma, brain, and spinal cord tumour, lymphoma, and retinoblastoma. Being an academic medical centre, AKUH has multiple specialties under one roof. This enables our doctors in the department of oncology to work closely with doctors from other departments, and ensure our patients receive the best possible care.
