The Pediatric Brain Tumor Clinic at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital is the first of its kind in Iowa and one of just a few in the United States. The clinic is multidisciplinary and collaborative, which means specialists from a variety of areas come together to create a personalized treatment plan for every patient.
We care for pediatric patients with brain tumors, as well as management of problems related to injuries to their still-developing brains. Bringing pediatric specialists from multiple medical areas into one clinic helps facilitate communication between providers, streamline care, and deliver a unified message to our patients and their families.
Your family will meet with all members of your child’s care team on one day, at one location, eliminating the need for scheduling several appointments with different specialists over multiple days. These coordinated discussions are focused on determining the best course of treatment for your child’s tumor.
