We treat nearly all children who receive care at Arkansas Children’s, whether they have a common illness or a rare condition. Our pathologists are experts at performing tests to diagnose everything from acute appendicitis to rare forms of pediatric cancer.
Our pathology team also works with your child’s doctors to determine the best treatments and to ensure that your child responds well to the care and treatments provided.
