Advanced Diagnostics and Treatment
Children with cancer and blood disorders have special physical, emotional and psychological needs. They require the highest level of medical expertise and highly specialized treatment combined with very personalized support from their physicians and care staff. That’s exactly what we provide at Nicklaus Children’s.
Every member of your care team – from diagnostics, through treatment and ongoing support – is trained and experienced in supporting children and their families who are dealing with a serious illness. Their skill and compassion can make all the difference for a child and family during this time – renewing health and restoring hope.
Blood & Marrow Transplantation Program
Our hallmark Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program at Nicklaus Children's Hospital is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year as South Florida’s first and most experienced center for children requiring blood or bone marrow transplantation. Since the program was founded in 1991, we have performed over 150 transplants with outcomes that are the best in the region.
At only 2 years old, Lacy needed to have a tumor removed from her brain; she also went through six months of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant. Today, Lacy is cancer free and going to different therapies to continue getting stronger every day.
