After treatment ends, do pediatric patients come back to Roswell Park for check-ups?


Yes, they do. We see our patients on a regular basis after they've completed therapy. We usually see them fairly frequently when therapy is first completed to make sure that the patient is remaining well. Even long-term after therapy, we see our patients periodically to check their health status overall, in terms of the illness for which they were treated, and also to watch for any potential long-term side effects of either the illness itself or the treatments that we've administered.
