Solid Tumor Program

Our solid tumor program has extensive experience treating patients with a wide variety of malignancies including: Wilms Tumor, Neuroblastoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Hepatoblastoma, Germ Cell Tumors, Desmoid tumors, other soft tissue sarcoma, renal and liver cancers. The team is composed of many different individuals and allows us to perform our care with a multidisciplinary approach to these types of cancers as well as benign solid tumors.

The patients treated by our team benefit from exclusively board-certified providers who combine the resources of the University Health System with the academic knowledge of the UT Health San Antonio.  Our program is an active participant in clinical research offering the most current treatment options to patients through the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). In addition to our clinical providers the program includes radiation oncology, child life, and social work/case management.
