Neuroblastoma Treatment in Israel

Neuroblastoma occurs when cancer cells begin to grow in immature nerve cells located within the sympathetic nervous system. It generally appears first in the adrenal glands (hormone-producing organs). However, it can also develop in any part of the body that has a cluster of nerve cells, such as the chest, neck, and near the spine. Neuroblastoma is the most common type of cancer in infants, and it usually presents in children under age five.

At Sheba Medical Center, our pediatric specialists collaborate to provide each young patient with premier, personalized neuroblastoma treatment in Israel, from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up. Our oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other experts use advanced technologies to provide rapid diagnosis and prompt treatment.

Treatments for Neuroblastoma

Once neuroblastoma has been diagnosed and staged, our multidisciplinary team will custom-design a treatment program for your child. We will consider a variety of factors, including age, location of the cancer, stage of the disease, risk group of the cancer, and the child’s response to initial treatment. Therapies may include:


our experienced oncologists will choose the most suitable chemotherapy drug(s) for each child, and we will adjust or change the medication as necessary.

Targeted Therapy

these drugs identify and attack specific cancer cells without causing damage to nearby healthy cells; many different types of targeted therapy drugs are available, and we will determine the most effective individualized options.

Bone Marrow Transplant / Stem Cell Transplant

usually an option only for children with high-risk neuroblastoma; chemotherapy and/or surgery are performed before the transplant and children with neuroblastoma typically receive their own stem cells. .
