Selecting where a child will receive their cancer treatment is one of the biggest decisions a caregiver can make.  At the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s, we understand this.  We are well known for offering the latest pediatric cancer treatments by nationally recognized medical specialists.  We are dedicated to not only treating cancer, but also the needs of the whole child—emotional, spiritual, and physical. Children simply shouldn’t have to give up being kids while dealing with the grown-up issue of cancer.
 
 
The CHOC Cancer Institute Difference
Children’s cancers are very different than adult cancers and must be treated with specific pediatric cancer protocols. Our experience in exclusively treating children, teens, and young adults makes us the experts in the evaluation and treatment of all forms of common childhood and adolescent cancers.  We are dedicated to administering the very latest pediatric cancer protocols. A majority of our protocols come from the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), a national organization funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).  Our relationship with the COG makes us the only medical center in the southwestern United States offering COG Phase I clinical trial therapies for pediatric cancer patients.
 
 
The Cancer Institute’s Team Approach
We believe in a team approach to providing treatment to our patients that includes a multidisciplinary team of physicians and specialists and the patient’s family.  We understand that a cancer diagnosis touches the lives of the entire family and for this reason are dedicated to a family-centered approach to care that includes immediately pairing patients and their families with a pediatric oncology nurse coordinator who serves as an advocate for the child and family throughout the patient’s course of treatment.  Learn more about what to expect right from the start.
 
 
Innovative Programs
Our treatment specific teams work to provide innovative, specialized programs for on-going diagnosis, management and treatment of pediatric cancers.  
 
When a child is ill and needs hospitalization, we understand that the entire family is affected.  Because we so strongly believe in allowing a child to be a child and creating a sense of normalcy through play, discovery and creativity, we are dedicated to offering the most comprehensive child-life and family support programs in the region.
 
 
World-class Care
Our physicians and other health care professionals are all specially trained to work with pediatric oncology patients. In addition to the treatment programs, services, and programs above, the Cancer Institute is proud to offer patients:
