El Camino Hospital Cancer Center

In the battle against cancer, you need doctors as relentless as the disease itself. Here at the Cancer Center at El Camino Hospital, the area’s best and brightest specialists fight cancer tirelessly with an innovative two-pronged approach.

First, we tackle cancer head on, aggressively targeting tumors with a strong, multi-disciplinary care plan. Specialists work together to combine the most effective therapies, including leading-edge innovations such as:

  • minimally invasive robotic surgery
  • customized chemotherapy
  • brachytherapy radiation
  • CyberKnife technology

Then, we add a personal touch to help patients and their families cope with challenges of both the disease, and the treatment.
