In November of 2009, Oasis of Hope opened its first treatment center in the United States — Oasis of Hope California, located in Irvine.
The opening of this center means that you can now find world-class integrative medical cancer treatment without having to travel outside the US.
We have established a superb staff for Oasis of Hope California. Dr. Warren Fong is an eminent board-certified oncologist, and Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy is one of the country's leading integrative physicians. Dr. Francisco Contreras, medical director of Oasis of Hope Hospital in Mexico comes up weekly to meet with patients. Additionally, many of the educators and staff come from the original Oasis of Hope with many years of experience providing Oasis' unique "Total Care Approach" care.
The focus of Oasis of Hope California is to treat the whole person — to look for the root cause of their cancer, including genetic, physiological, environmental, nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual factors. Oasis of Hope's comprehensive treatment protocols incorporate the best alternative and integrative therapies with proven conventional cancer treatments, customized to each individual — customized not just to their biological needs but to their personal wishes.
Oasis of Hope has a partnership with the Center for New Medicine (CFNM), and is located in offices connected to the Center. CFNM is a state-of-the-art, full-service integrative medical clinic. This partnership provides Oasis of Hope California patients access to a whole range of complementary therapies, including hyperbaric oxygen, Vitamin C IV's, and advanced medical technology usually only found in major hospitals and universities. You can learn more about the Center for New Medicine by visiting their website: http://www.cfnmedicine.com.
Oasis of Hope California's integrative cancer treatment is unique. We do offer conventional standard-of-care treatments, laboratory work and diagnostic imaging, consultations with our Oncologist and Integrative Medicine Specialist and, if appropriate, chemotherapy. However, we combine those treatments with advanced integrative medical protocols that not only reduce the adverse side effects, but actually make the conventional approaches work more effectively.
Just as importantly, these medical treatments are only a starting point. Oasis of Hope California creates a "wrap-around' care system designed to address every aspect of a person's life to support the goal of optimizing their longevity and quality of life.
