Pediatric Brain Tumor Unit
The team of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Unit cares for patients with a benign or malignant brain tumor and their families in close cooperation with colleagues from Pediatric Neurosurgery, Pediatric Neuroradiology, Radiation Therapy, Psychooncology, Neuropediatrics and Pediatric Neurooncology (DKFZ). Our in-house patients and outpatients are discussed in regularly scheduled interdisciplinary Brain Tumor Boards and advised according to their individual needs. Therapy follows the latest protocols of the Brain Tumor Network (HIT) of the Society for Pediatric Oncology and Hematology (GPOH) as well as innovative phase I/II studies. We also aim for incorporating molecular information based on latest molecular technologies in supporting clinical diagnosis and treatment decision making.
