Diagnosing Tumors

If your child has a bone tumor, we understand that not knowing if it’s benign or malignant is very stressful – which is why we offer same-day appointments to make a diagnosis as quickly as possible. After we determine the type of tumor, we’ll begin treatment and support your child and family every step of the way.
