Getting treated for GI carcinoid tumors at City of Hope means you are steps away from labs where new treatments for cancer are being developed every day. That proximity means you benefit from something unique in cancer care — bench to bedside treatment. “Bench to bedside” means innovative research we are conducting in our labs is moved quickly to the bedside to treat our patients.
By collaborating with other departments and cancer centers, City of Hope’s gastrointestinal carcinoid cancer program has developed a large and active portfolio of clinical trials studying new treatments, including surgery, radiation and drug therapy regimens that are more effective against this disease. Many of these promising therapies are only available to City of Hope patients.
