City of Hope South Pasadena is a 22,000 square foot state-of-the-art outpatient cancer center which serves the San Gabriel Valley, San Fernando Valley and parts of greater Los Angeles.
 
Located on Fair Oaks Avenue in South Pasadena, California, the Cancer Center is staffed by nationally recognized physicians from City of Hope who provide expertise in the following areas :
 
  • Medical Oncology
  • Radiation Oncology 
  • Hematology
  • Surgical Oncology & Breast Surgery
  • Thoracic Surgery
  • Gynecologic Oncology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Urology, Urologic Oncology and Robotic Surgery
 
City of Hope South Pasadena is among the first in Los Angeles to offer RapidArc, a new advanced non-surgical treatment that destroys tumors. Using computerized image-guided technology, RapidArc conforms to the tumor, sparing healthy tissue and organs from radiation. In addition to its precision, RapidArc is up to 8 times faster than other advanced radiation therapies. Many treatments are as short as just a few minutes - giving patients more time to do the things they enjoy most.
 
In addition, with expertise in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, City of Hope South Pasadena surgeons provide patients with the latest treatment options that reduce recovery time and improve outcomes. Collaborating to discover, develop and implement innovative strategies for the prevention and treatment of cancer, our physicians bring nationally recognized expertise in cancer care and research to the local community.

Every medical situation - and every insurance plan - is different, and there is no guarantee that coverage can be secured.

  • When 25-year-old Angelina Mattos was diagnosed with Stage 4 oral cancer earlier this year, she learned that her only hope of survival was through the removal of her tongue, a surgery that leaves people without the ability to talk or eat normally, sometimes permanently ending their ability to speak. After hearin...
  • Two years ago, Joselyn Miller and her family sat together as stem cells from her brother’s bone marrow were infused into her – a precious gift of life that the family is excited to have the chance to pass to another patient in need.

  • Even as the overall rate of oral cancers in the United States steadily declines, the rate of tongue cancer is increasing — especially among white females ages 18 to 44.

  • Sometimes cancer found in the lungs is not lung cancer at all. It can be another type of cancer that originated elsewhere in the body and spread, or metastasized, to the lungs through the bloodstream or lymphatic system. These tumors are called lung metastases, or metastatic cancer to the lungs, and are not the...

  • The holidays can create an overwhelming urge to give to people in need — especially to sick children and families spending the holidays in a hospital room. That’s a good thing.

  • Cancer has a way of “talking” to the immune system and corrupting it to work on its own behalf instead of defending the body. Blocking this communication would allow the immune system to see cancer cells for what they are – something to be fought off – and stop them from growing. A breakthrough Scientists [R...
