Pediatric cancers are very different from adult cancers for several reasons. First of all, the type of cancers seen in children are different than those diagnosed in adults. Second, unlike with many adult cancers, it isn't clear what causes childhood cancer. The genetic defects behind childhood cancer are very unique. Lastly, childhood cancers are relatively uncommon, therefore requiring a highly specialized and dedicated multidisciplinary team of expert doctors, nurses and other health professionals to achieve best results.
The University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive care for children, adolescents and young adults with all forms of childhood cancer, including rare and resistant forms of cancer. Our experienced physicians offer the most advanced therapies for patients who are newly diagnosed, and those seeking innovative treatments for rare, relapsed and recurrent cancers. We are glad to offer services at Northville Health Center, offer conveniently coordinated care closer to home for our local patients.
