To Its Team of Experienced Providers
LAS VEGAS – December 1, 2023 – Cure 4 The Kids Foundation (C4K) is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Suraj Pratap, M.D. to their team of healthcare providers. As Southern Nevada’s only pediatric cancer and rare disease treatment center, C4K continues to attract highly qualified specialists despite the challenges posed by a nationwide shortage of pediatric sub-specialists.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Pratap join the team at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation,” said Annette Logan-Parker, CEO of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “Nevada is facing a significant physician shortage, but our priority remains expanding our clinic’s specialized physician workforce. Dr. Pratap’s arrival is a testament to our commitment to recruiting top-notch providers.”
Dr. Pratap brings with him a wealth of experience, having previously practiced general pediatrics in Las Vegas. He recently obtained his board-certification in pediatric hematology oncology, which will provide additional resources and expertise to C4K’s existing team of seven providers. Fluent in both English and Hindi, Dr. Pratap will begin seeing C4K patients this month.
Born in India, Dr. Pratap earned his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from Veer Narmad South Gujarat University. He furthered his education in Texas, obtaining a Master of Science degree in biomedical sciences from the University of North Texas Health Science Center.
Dr. Pratap completed his pediatric residency at the University Hospital of Brooklyn, State University of New York (SUNY), and subsequently pursued a fellowship in pediatric hematology-oncology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC).
Throughout his career, Dr. Pratap has been actively involved in providing healthcare to those affected by disasters, including the twin earthquakes in Nepal in 2015. He has collaborated on numerous studies published in esteemed peer-reviewed journals such as Pediatric Blood & Cancer, JCO Oncology Practice, JAMA Oncology, and the International Journal of Clinical Pediatrics.
A member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Society of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, and the American Medical Association, Dr. Pratap is not only dedicated to his profession but also enjoys sketching, painting, poetry, traveling, and trekking in his free time.
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation is proud to have Dr. Pratap join their team, further enhancing their ability to provide exceptional care to pediatric patients and their families in Southern Nevada.
