City of Hope Orange County Lennar Foundation Cancer Center Will Offer Leading-Edge Technology

The cancer center will be the most advanced in the region, purposefully designed to be high touch AND high tech.

Patients will receive exceptional, compassionate care from world-renowned cancer experts. They will benefit from innovations designed to get them back to their lives sooner and that make their care experience easier and more convenient. The NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, opening this year in Irvine, will provide access to more than 400 physicians and 1,000 researchers and scientists solely focused on curing cancer.

Distinguishing services include a clinical research center offering access to phase 1 to 3 trials, an outpatient center offering diagnostic imaging and screenings, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology and much more.

“People facing cancer need access to the most advanced therapies for their specific type of cancer,” said Dilruba Haque, M.D., a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer at City of Hope Newport Beach Lido and City of Hope Irvine Sand Canyon. “This advanced technology helps our highly specialized physicians bring the newest and best treatment options to patients who need them today.”

Here’s a glimpse of some of the innovations coming to Lennar Foundation Cancer Center:

Fast and Accurate Therapeutic Technology

Lennar Foundation Cancer Center will utilize the most advanced technology for diagnosing and treating cancer, helping our physicians provide exactly the right treatment at the right time.

Shown here arriving at the cancer center is City of Hope’s new Magnetom Vida, Siemens’ most advanced MRI scanner. The system harnesses a 3 tesla-strength magnet, a pull that is thousands of times that of the earth’s, to provide highly detailed images.

“This leading-edge technology is faster and produces higher quality images than other MRI systems,” said Jessica Patel, City of Hope Orange County’s director of diagnostic radiology. “It gives our physicians a clear, non-invasive way to view vital structures in the patient’s body and enhances our diagnostic capabilities both before and after cancer treatment. Advanced imaging techniques like these can also be used to guide or in some cases even avoid a biopsy.”

Robotic Surgery

The benefits of robotic surgery include speedier recovery and a quicker return to normal life. Lennar Foundation Cancer Center will offer minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery as its highly skilled surgeons utilize a da Vinci surgical system.

The latest robotic machines add an astounding level of precision. 3D video screens enable surgeons to see more (even around corners), while ultra-miniature instruments are guided to remove the smallest, most awkwardly located tumors no human hand could ever reach.

While the robotic arms may look straight out of a futuristic movie, they give highly trained and skilled surgeons the added benefits of technology that helps extend their capabilities.

There’s more in store as the future of cancer medicine arrives in Orange County. As the future unfolds, we’ll make sure high tech AND high touch are two things patients can count on throughout their journey at City of Hope.
