City of Hope offers comprehensive, family-centered, leading-edge treatment for children, adolescents and young adults with malignant and benign tumors of the brain and spinal cord.
For nearly two decades, City of Hope has provided lifesaving treatments by bringing basic laboratory research to the patient’s bedside. Gene therapy and stem cell therapy trials are being developed by City of Hope researchers to treat some of the deadliest forms of brain cancer.
City of Hope is also a member of the Children’s Oncology Group, which provides access to the nation’s largest group of pediatric and adolescent clinical trials. In addition, our team of neurosurgeons offers world-class neurosurgical techniques for tumors of both brain and spine.
We were also the first hospital in Southern California to provide helical TomoTherapy, which dramatically decreases the side effects of radiation treatment.
