Our radiation oncology team treats cancers
with a variety of radiation therapies.
The experienced radiation oncology team at Johns Hopkins specializes in treating all types of cancer with a variety of radiation therapies. As part of a larger multidisciplinary oncology team that diagnoses and treats cancer, our team of radiation oncology specialists, including physicians, medical physicists, dosimetrists, nurses, and therapists, creates an individualized radiation therapy plan developed for each patient’s specific needs.

It’s important to keep in mind that the advanced technologies used at Johns Hopkins require a great deal of experience and expertise to use them. Because our staff, including the radiation oncologists and therapists, specializes in both the cancers they treat and the technologies they use, each patient can be assured that they are expert in using the technology that will best treat the type of cancer the patient has.

The safety and well being of our patients and their families are always the primary concern of every member of the radiation oncology team. We have developed a comprehensive safety program that is unique to Johns Hopkins. As an international leader in radiation safety, our standards for safety serve as an example for other academic and community-based radiation practices. Our safety program not only complies with state and national protocols, it goes well beyond those protocols by integrating innovative safety techniques developed by experts on our staff.

Through our clinical research, we offer our patients the most effective and safest therapies available, in addition to clinical trials that patients can choose to participate in.
