Five-Year Survival Rates
Statistics on outcomes reflect the excellent care at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. These are survival rates for patients diagnosed at age 19 or younger and between Jan. 1, 2006, and Dec. 31, 2012, with a malignant, invasive brain or spinal cord tumor.
By definition, five-year survival statistics do not reflect the treatments, technology and expertise available today. In addition, these reflect the most difficult cases because patients with noninvasive tumors are not included.
Ependymoma and choroid plexus
Other unspecified tumors
Germ cell tumors
