Our Expertise

When it comes to surgery, experience counts for a lot. And City of Hope surgeons have among the most experience on the West Coast with robotic surgery for thymoma and thymic carcinoma. These are the gentler procedures that use smaller incisions, reducing pain and recovery time.
We have boosted our already extraordinary level of care in recent years with an influx of new faculty in medical oncology who are world experts in cancers of the thymus. Bringing their unique perspectives to City of Hope enables us to help patients in way only a handful of centers anywhere can.
We offer advanced technologies and specialized techniques:
  • Comprehensive diagnostic tools
  • Innovative, minimally invasive surgical approaches that reduce side effects and recovery time
  • Highly precise radiation delivery, including helical Tomotherapy
  • Individually customized chemotherapy and hormone therapy regimens
  • Clinical trials that offer promising new approaches to detect and treat thymus cancer

Patients also have access to our extensive slate of supportive care services, to help you and your caregivers achieve and maintain a better quality of life during and after your treatment for thymus cancer.
