Oncology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancerous tumors. While cancer is usually thought of as an adult disease, many infants and children also suffer from different types of cancers and debilitating diseases. Sunrise Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology and Special Services programs provide diagnosis and treatment for children with oncology, immune, and hematology disorders. In fact, our facility is the only dedicated pediatric oncology unit in the state of Nevada.
Our hospital is also a full member of the Children’s Oncology Group, or COG—a national organization devoted to the treatment of childhood cancers. After screening patients to identify their eligibility, we employ only the best therapeutic and research protocols to treat infants and children with oncology, hematology, and immune system disorders. Some of the most common hematologic disorders include bone marrow failure syndromes, neutropenia, anemia, thrombocytosis, and blood clotting disorders , such as hemostasis. Immune system disorders include leukemia, diabetes, asthma, and more serious immunodeficiency diseases, such as HIV and AIDS.
We not only utilize the most advanced, high-tech solutions, but we also employ nurses who have passed and maintain the Oncology Nursing Studies (ONS) certification exam and the pediatric version. This ensures that our team of nurses can efficiently care for children that require chemotherapy treatments and other therapeutic modalities associated with pediatric cancer treatments.
Our pediatric physicians and specially trained nurses with the Pediatric Oncology Department and Specialty Services at Sunrise Children’s Hospital are devoted to providing the best diagnostic and treatment options for your family’s needs. Learn about your child’s risk for certain immune disorders or cancers by visiting our website or by contacting us at (702) 731-5437 today.
