Central Nervous System Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor Treatment

Central Nervous System Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor Treatment

At Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM), you’ll find compassionate, comprehensive care for central nervous system atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (AT/RTs). These rare, aggressive cancers begin in the brain or spinal cord and most often affect young children.

Here, your child will receive the best available care—including access to the latest clinical trials—in a supportive and nurturing environment. Our research model brings together exceptional physicians with internationally recognized scientists to develop groundbreaking therapies and innovative treatment strategies. We were the first to report long-term survival using two stem cell transplants involving a patient’s own stem cells in those with inoperable AT/RTs. These tumors were otherwise always fatal. Our pediatric cancer genetics clinic also offers genetic evaluations for all children with rare tumors.

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.
