Most cancers that are common in children are different from those seen in adults. Pediatric oncology focuses on cancers in infants, children, and teens. Doctors in pediatric oncology are specially trained to care for your child and keep them comfortable during their treatment.

"Pediatric Oncology"

Diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of pediatric blood diseases and cancers require a multidisciplinary approach; considering this fact, all necessary units work cooperatively for quick and ideal treatment services regarding supervision of such diseases in our hospital. All laboratory tests which are required for diagnosis and supervision of these diseases but cannot be analyzed in our country are delivered to reference laboratories in the world. “Multidisciplinary Pediatric Tumor Council” is organized with participation of pediatric surgery, pediatric radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, pathology, neurosurgery, otorhinolaryngology, orthopedics and other departments, when necessary, in addition to Pediatric Hematology and Oncology team. Optimal practice is discussed and planned for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of each patient in these councils in the form of a joint protocol. 

Its is very important that chemotherapy, surgery, or radiotherapy are performed at the right time and with the proper algorithm, and that the patient's compliance with the treatment is maximized with the family and the child as part of the modern treatment. Pediatric oncology is a team work that also involves the family. The pediatric oncologist plans, organizes and implements the medication part of the treatment. Once the disease is cured, the oncologist makes the necessary arrangements to prevent recurrence.
