Jefferson University Hospitals

Thymoma

If you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with thymoma or another type of thymic tumor, turn to the experts at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia for precise diagnosis and a treatment plan designed for your specific condition. About 90 percent of tumors that develop in the thymus are thymomas, but this type of cancer is rare.

At Jefferson, you will have access to a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists who will collaborate to ensure you are receiving the best treatment possible.

If surgery is the recommended option, our experienced surgeons in the Thoracic Surgery Program can perform robotic resections of mediastinal masses. Robotic resections provide many advantages to traditional surgeries, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Smaller incisions
  • Less blood loss
  • Quicker recovery time
