Rhabdomyosarcoma Treatment

Rhabdomyosarcoma Treatment

At the Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM), you’ll find nationally renowned, comprehensive care for pediatric rhabdomyosarcoma, a type of cancer that forms in muscle tissue. We know that each child’s cancer is different, so we personalize and target treatment, making sure your child receives the therapies that will be safest and most effective for them. 

We provide a detailed initial evaluation, including a biopsy by a pathologist who specializes in the diagnosis of sarcomas. This helps us determine the treatments most likely to be effective for your child and to evaluate whether they are candidates for clinical trials that test new treatment approaches. Physicians on CHAM’s pediatric sarcoma team lead many of the clinical trials across the country to improve treatments and find a cure. Through our research efforts, our team works to uncover the most advanced, up-to-date and promising new treatments.

When you want only the best for your child, turn to the caring specialists at Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center at CHAM, who are passionate about ending cancer and addressing your child’s whole health needs.
