Overview

Our mission at the Thyroid Head and Neck Oncology and Pediatric Endocrine (Thyroid HOPE) Center at Cleveland Clinic Children’s is to provide compassionate, comprehensive and state of the art care to all pediatric patients and family members affected by cancer.

Our team strives to lead in the innovation and research of pediatric head and neck cancer, in order to work towards making it a preventable and curable disease.

The Thyroid HOPE Center offers a unique multidisciplinary approach to the management of children with a variety of head and neck masses, both benign and malignant. Our state-of-the art services, including in-office ultrasound and biopsy capabilities, allow for a comprehensive and expeditious evaluation of head and neck masses.

Multispecialty Team Saves Toddler with Eye Cancer

”When Gabe looks in a mirror, we don’t want him to see a kid who had cancer. We want him to see a kid who likes to play basketball, a kid who’s good at math, a kid who wants to be a doctor when he grows up. That’s what we want, to cure the cancer and give a person the most normal life that they can have.”

Virtual Second Opinions

If you cannot travel to Cleveland Clinic, help is available. You can connect with Cleveland Clinic specialists from any location in the world via a phone, tablet, or computer, eliminating the burden of travel time and other obstacles.

If you’re facing a significant medical condition or treatment such as surgery, this program provides virtual access to a Cleveland Clinic physician who will review the diagnosis and treatment plan. Following a comprehensive evaluation of medical records and labs, you’ll receive an educational second opinion from an expert in their medical condition covering diagnosis, treatment options or alternatives as well as recommendations regarding future therapeutic considerations. You’ll also have the unique opportunity to speak with the physician expert directly to address questions or concerns.
