Welcome to The Retinoblastoma Center of Houston

Doctors and researchers from four Texas Medical Center institutions have joined together in the fight against retinoblastoma, a childhood cancer of the eye.

The result of their collaboration is the Retinoblastoma Center of Houston, which includes experts from Texas Children’s Cancer Center, the Children’s Cancer Hospital at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Methodist Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine.

Together these specialists will pioneer advancements in treating and curing retinoblastoma through ground-breaking research and the development of innovative therapies.

Retinoblastoma Center Houston is the only center of its kind in the southwest United States and the only center in the nation investigating gene therapy. Patients will also have access to a special form of radiation called proton therapy, which helps to spare the healthy tissue around tumor areas.
